AMERX® Hydrocolloid Dressing
AMERX® Hydrocolloid Dressing is a sterile, self-adhering and conformable dressing for areas requiring contouring with an occlusive, water-resistant cover. Ideal for managing dry to light exudating wounds.
• Sterile, semi-transparent dressings easily conform to skin surface, manage wound exudate, and create a moist wound environment
• Ideal for dry and lightly exduating wounds
AMERX® Hydrocolloid Dressing is for use as a primary dressing over dry and light exudating chronic and acute wounds.
Contraindicated for use on third-degree burns or if there are known sensitivities to the dressing components.
Protect periwound skin as needed. Should any signs of redness or irritation appear, discontinue use and consult a health care professional. In the presence of infection, product use may continue in combination with appropriate antibiotic therapy and wound monitoring under medical supervision.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space. Avoid storage in direct sunlight.
