ABD Pad Gauze by Invacare Abdominal Pad by Invacare is a three layer pad for wound care. This abdominal pad is soft and has a non-woven outer layer, absorbent fluff filler and wet-proof moisture barrier. Invacare Abdominal Pad is similar to Tendersorb and Surgipad ABD.
This product is awesome! Having my first baby through c-section, I was quite paranoid. I used gauze pad on my abdominal stitch to protect me from getting bacteria and also to avoid bleeding. It really did the job. My stitch healed fast and didn't have any issues like infection or bacteria going through my wound.

With 3 layers, it is pretty absorbent. Preventing fluid leaking, it also enables your skin to breathe. Don't bother to compare price with local drug stores. I already did and I decided to buy it here. Thank you!
