First- and Second-Degree Burns
Moderately/Highly Exudating Wounds
For heavily exudating wounds, clean the wound as necessary. Sprinkle a layer of Gold Dust™ to generously cover the wound area. Note: Product will absorb 100 times its own water weight. Therefore, it may not be necessary to use the entire contents of this package. Once the product interacts with the wound exudates, the powder will turn into a gel. Cover the wound with a non-adherent dressing and secure with tape or elastic bandage.
For moderately exudating wounds, clean the wound as necessary. Mix packet contents (3g) into 30cc of water, mix rapidly. Fill the wound cavity with the gel. Cover the wound with a non-adherent dressing and secure with tape or elastic bandage.
Change the dressings daily or when saturated with exudate. Gold Dust™ may be flushed using saline or irrigation system.
It is recommended that the Gold Dust™ be covered with non-adherent wound dressing.
