Wound odor is caused by bacteria residing in necrotic wound tissue and it can be an embarrassing problem for both patients and caregivers. Odor from certain types of wounds cannot be avoided. But controlling it is possible with odor absorbent dressings so that the odor does not become overpowering and escape into the environment. These dressings are designed to control or neutralize the odor emanating from malodorous wounds such as surgical, traumatic, cancerous or gangrenous wounds, leg ulcers and pressure sores.

It absorbs the bacteria and toxins. Combining it with an antimicrobial enhances the odor-control nature of the dressing.
