Do not use on open, infected wounds or over scabs.
Should maceration or rash occur, remove the dressing and allow the skin to recover until the symptom has disappeared, then continue treatment gradually increasing therapy time. If the symptom persists, discontinue use and consult a physician for advice.

Open the packaging and remove the dressing. If necessary, cut to appropriate size allowing overlap of minimum 1cm. When applying Mepiform®, make sure the area is dry. When used together with ointment or cream, ensure the dressing covers an area beyond the cream. Remove the release film and apply Mepiform® over the scar/wound. Avoid stretching when applying over joints.
Mepiform® should optimally be worn for 24 hours a day.
Remove the dressing once per day for inspection and washing of the skin. The dressing can then be reapplied. Mepiform should under normal conditions be changed every 3-7 days or when the adherent properties of the dressing are no longer sufficient. Mepiform is waterproof and can be worn while bathing and showering.
