- Transparent Dressings Review
This film dressing works awesome. Most of my patients have skin ulcers and we have to keep them from getting wet and from getting infection. We cover the affected area with this film dressing and it does not move that much. Even if they sweat, it is not a problem because it still sticks well.
- This product is a great way to keep a wound dry.
The product arrived in a timely manner and I was very satisfied with it.
- Cover the wounds with Tegaderm Transparent Dressings
It is a thin, clear as well as sterile dressing in order to keep us moisture out. It prevents wound from dirt and germs and also lets our skin breathe. The frame style can be according to the requirement of the wound. It is meant basically for challenging and difficult-to-dress areas. I use this product whenever it is necessary.
