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.
