Mode of Use/Application

Cut the appropriate size of DermaTex™ Ag for the affected area with clean scissors, allowing a minimum of 2" of the fabric exposed outside the skin fold for moisture evaporation.
Lay a single layer of fabric in the skin fold, placing one edge of the fabric in to the base of the skin fold. Leave a least 2" of fabric exposed outside the skin fold.
Secure the fabric in one or more of the following ways: with the skin fold, with a small amount of medical tape, and/or tucking under clothing. Ensure the applied fabric is not constricting the affected area.

Removal & Change Frequency

Each piece of DermaTex™ Ag may be used up to a maximum of 5 days, depending on fabric soiling, odor, amount of moisture and general skin condition.
Remove the fabric before bathing/showering and reapply when finished.
When removing the fabric from skin folds, gently separate the skin fold and lift away the fabric. Dispose of used dressing after a maximum of 5 days use time according to local procedures and guidelines.
