Instructions for Use
It is recommended to change dressing on a daily basis to maintain a moist, non-adherent environment. Cleanse wound with saline solution or sterile water. Gently pat dry surrounding skin. Place dressing directly over wound or into the wound. The dressing will cling and conform to the body. Choose a secondary dressing to cover the dressing such as a transparent film, tape or roll gauze to secure.
How to Change Your Xeroform Bandage
Xeroform and double antibiotic dressings: Double antibiotic ointment or polysporn can be prescribed or purchased over the counter without a prescription. Xeroform is a type of petroleum-based gauze used to keep the wound moist and protect the tissue while promoting healing. To make a dressing, get your supplies ready - double antibiotic ointment, xeroform gauze, and tape. Ensure that you wash your hands prior to and after doing the dressing. First apply double antibiotic ointment to your wound. Next cut appropriate length strips of Xeroform and place them over the burned areas. When you apply the dressing try to limit application on healthy skin. Allow some overlap, about 1 inch, onto healthy skin expecting that you're dressing will shift as you move about. To protect your dressing, wrap with the role of dry gauze. When wrapping arms or legs always start from the outermost end and wrap upward toward the body. For example, start at the toes and wrap upward toward the knee, or start at the fingers and work toward the shoulder. Secure with tape. If needed, you can further secure your dressing with snug fitting clothing. If you're dressing shifts and areas of your burn become exposed during the day, reinforce the dressing and reapply ointment if needed. Do not allow your healing burn to dry out.
