• Non-adherent to reduce trauma to the wound and patient upon removal
• Bacteriostatic action in light exudating wounds


Xeroform® Occlusive Dressing is intended for use as a primary contact layer in dressing wounds such as lacerations, skin graft recipient sites, newly sutured wounds, abrasions and minor or partial-thickness burns. It may also be used as an initial layer in dressing surgical wounds with light exudate where mild medication and deodorization are desired.
