ALLEVYN* Thin is a gentle adhesive dressing designed to be highly absorbent yet comfortable to use on low exudating wounds or fragile skin. Water/bacteria-proof.
• Does not adhere to the wound for patient comfort and easy removal
• Maintains a moist wound environment to help promote healing
• Helps minimize risk of maceration and secondary infection
• Semi-transparent film allows the wound to be monitored
• Permeable to oxygen and water vapor
• Easily shaped to fit difficult areas
• Sticks well to dry intact skin
ALLEVYN* Thin is indicated for use on surface wounds with low to moderate exudate such as first- and second-degree burns, follow-up management of abrasions and donor sites, partial-thickness wounds, leg ulcers, stage I and II pressure ulcers and post-operative wounds.
Do not use on wounds with exposed muscle, bone or tendon or where a risk of drying out exists or where the surrounding skin is damaged or sensitive.
Do not use any ALLEVYN* product with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide solutions.

Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Select an appropriate size dressing. Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture.
Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound, overlapping the wound edges by at least 2cm. Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled.
ALLEVYN* Thin dressings can be worn for up to seven days. To remove, lift one corner of the dressing gently away from the wound.
