The Algicell Ag Silver Calcium Alginate Dressing with Antimicrobial Silver is an applicable sheet to help in the treatment of wounds and reduce bacterial growth that may cause infections. The alginate dressing is made from seaweed material for a natural cure instead of a drug base dependency. The Derma Sciences Algicell AG Silver Alginate Dressing helps lessen the healing time process by keeping the covered wound area moist; which is key for a quick and safe process repairing wounds such as cuts, scrapes, and open skin sections.
The wound dressing does not leave behind traces of adhesive residue as it is made with a gelling backing. The square design conforms to the area needing treatment, it can be applied by the options of sizes offered such as the Derma Sciences 88522 Algicell 2 x 2 inch Alginate Dressing, or the Derma Sciences 88544 Algicell 4 x 4 inch Alginate Dressing, both carry the same impregnated 1.4 percent silver which also aids in the process by providing the antimicrobial agent to the wound, and are both provided sterile for such wounds made more deeply into the tissue such as surgical hospital or office procedures.
The non-adhesive backing makes removal of the dressing painless by not pulling on the skin and damaging the healing scabs. After removal of the dressing, you may clean-off your wound with a Medline Sterile Prep Pads 70% Isopropyl Alcohol Antiseptic.
Before applying any type of dressing, make sure you clean the wounded area with an antimicrobial cleanser or wipe such as the Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film by 3M or the SafeWash Sterile Saline Wound Cleanser.
