While exudates in acute wounds encourage healing, chronic wound exudates are considered damaging. Chronic injury contains high levels of harmful substances and microorganisms, which can adversely affect wound healing. Also, an excessive amount of wound drainage can cause peri-wound maceration. 

On the other hand, if the wound bed becomes too dry, a scab will form that can impede healing. Therefore, an ideal dressing should maintain moisture balance in the wound bed and effectively remove excess fluid. One such option is the Absorbent Dressing, which wicks away harmful drainage and helps promote wound healing. 

What is an absorbent wound dressing? 

Absorbent dressings are multilayered wound dressings with higher absorption capacity than traditional dressings designed to manage highly exuding wounds. They absorb excess fluid and help keep the wound clean and free from infection. They also help to promote healing by keeping the wound moist and providing a barrier against bacteria.  

Absorbent wound dressings stay dry and comfortable and do not require frequent change. HPFY offers different types of absorbent dressings in varying sizes, shapes, and attributes to suit different wound conditions, locations, and dimensions.


The exudate-absorbing dressings may be used as primary or secondary dressings to manage surgical incisions, burns, lacerations, abrasions, pressure injuries, diabetic foot ulcers, donor or skin graft sites, or any other exudating wounds. 

How does absorbent dressing help heal wounds? 

Absorbent dressings are multi-layered and made up of highly absorptive layers of cellulose, cotton, or rayon fibers with either a non-adherent or semi-adherent layer.  

To help the wound heal, the absorptive dressing:
