Mode of Use/Application

Wet dressing with sterile or clean water. Apply directly to the wound bed overlapping the wound margins by 1cm-2cm. Avoid use of petroleum-based ointments or creams under the Silverlon® dressing. Optimal performance is achieved by keeping the Silverlon® dressing moist and free from excessive exudate buildup. Periodically check the edges of the dressing to ensure that proper moisture levels are being maintained. Add water when necessary.

Removal & Change Frequency

When removing the Silverlon® burn dressing, check to see if it is dry or is sticking to the wound bed. If sticking occurs, saturate the dressing with water and wait until it can be easily removed by gently lifting the corners. All Silverlon® Wound and Burn Dressings are designed for up to seven day use.

Additional Recommended Dressings

Cover the Silverlon® burn dressing with a secondary dressing of choice.
