Nu-Derm® Hydrocolloid Wound Dressing, by Johnson and Johnson, is a sterile dressing that utilizes a gel matrix (hydrocolloid) to maintain a moist environment when placed on a wound. The moist environment aids the body's healing time and helps bring dead tissue to the surface (debridement). Nu-Derm® dressings prevent maceration while maintaining constant moisture. This wound dressing is designed to be ultra-comfortable and cooling and will conform to the body's contours. A soft gel is formed after contact with the wound fluid and makes it easy and safe by protecting sensitive tissue when pulled off of the wound. The dressing comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to match the wound area dimension. This hydrocolloid dressing is best to be applied to a low-risk wound to protect against bacterial contamination. It is primarily for semi-dry, lightly exuding wounds, post-operative wounds, and superficial wounds and abrasions.
