Savlon Alginate Dressings - Sometimes you will need more than a traditional plaster to help to protect a wound, and new Savlon Alginate Dressings have been designed to offer more advanced first aid. Hypoallergenic and latex free, they protect wounds from dirt, water and infection and provide just the right conditions to aid faster healing, prevent scarring and reducing pain.

Alginate dressings can be used onlightly weeping or bleeding wounds, as these dressings offer extra absorbency. The super absorbent pad helps to control bleeding and prevent the wound from drying out so it can heal quickly without a scab forming. This in turn also helps to prevent scaring.


When to use a Savlon dressing:

Ideally these dressings should be applied to fresh wounds, which have been cleaned and where a scab has not formed.

How long should I keep the dressing on?

The longer you are able to leave the wound undisturbed the faster it will heal.  The dressings have been designed to stay in place for 3 to 7 days.

Do they need to be changed after showering?

The dressings provide an effective barrier against bacteria, dirt and water and therefore they should stay in place even after showering.

If they begin to peel away from the wound it is advisable to change the dressings – however as long as they remain attached, they can stay in place for 3 – 7 days.


Savlon Alginate Dressings contain:

All the plasters are hypoallergenic and latex free and suitable for all the family.
