Sterile dressing made of knitted, high porosity cellulose acetate is impregnated with U.S.P. white petrolatum in an emulsion blend that permits the flow of exudates without adhering to granulating tissue. Nonocclusive dressing helps minimize skin maceration. Highly conformable and ideal for lightly draining wounds including minor burns, lacerations, abrasions, suture lines and episiotomy incisions. Use directly on the wound beneath an absorbent secondary dressing.
