Warnings and Precautions

A health care professional should frequently inspect and manage infected wounds, and wounds which are solely or partially caused by arterial insufficiency, in accordance with local guidelines.
The product should not be used on patients with a known sensitivity to silver or carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), as this can lead to an allergic reaction.
In the event of a systemic infection, topical silver does not replace the need for systemic therapy or other adequate infection treatment.
