It is recommended that the wound bed be debrided of any necrotic or sloughy fibrotic tissue prior to the application of Hycol™. Apply Hycol™ powder to cover the entire wound bed and the edges of the wound. Cover with appropriate (absorptive) dressing.
Reapply two to three times per week or as needed. Gently remove secondary dressing from the wound bed. If secondary dressing adheres to the wound bed, moisten before removing.
Cover with an appropriate dressing per facility protocol that provides a moist wound healing environment.
