Change daily or as indicated by the amount of drainage. If the condition worsens or does not improve in 10-14 days, consult a physician.

Dry Skin Conditions
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Assess, debride and clean the wound according to the appropriate protocols. Treat with medication, if indicated. Apply the Collatek® Collagen Gel in a (1/4)" thick layer over the entire wound. For tunneling, undermined or cavity wounds, a gauze or calcium alginate dressing may be used as packing material in combination with Collatek® Collagen Gel.
• Collatek® Collagen Gel may be administered directly into the wound. A packing material can be then used as required.
• Collatek® Collagen Gel may be applied to packing material before application to the wound.
Cover with a secondary dressing; i.e., non-adherent, hydrocolloid (only if wound is free from infection), hydrogel pad or semi-permeable dressing.
Remove the secondary (cover) dressing daily. If secondary dressing is adhered to the wound, irrigate with saline solution until dressing loosens and lift gently. Irrigate the wound with saline to cleanse the area thoroughly. Reapply Collatek® Collagen Gel starting with step 2. Can be used in conjunction with Medifil® II Collagen Particles and Skintemp® II Collagen Sheets.
