Frequently Asked Questions On Hydrocellular Dressing

Hydrocellular dressings are bacteria- and water-resistant highly absorbent dressings. They create a moist environment for wounds allowing quick recovery. Allevyn dressings, a popular brand of hydrocellular dressings, are effective on moderate-to-high exudating wounds.

Hydrocellular dressings are popular because they are gentle on the wound yet effective and provide enhanced comfort and protection to patients. The micro-thin edges of the dressing allow it to stay securely in place without shifting. Thus, it can remain on the wound for a longer term and exudate can be monitored by its outer waterproof film layer.

Hydrocellular dressings are used on:

  • Partial-to-full thickness wounds
  • Venous, arterial, diabetic and pressure ulcers
  • Donor sites
  • Surgical excisions
  • First- and second-degree burns
ALLEVYN adhesive hydrocellular dressings:
  • Are non-irritating
  • Have low allergy adhesive
  • Prevent bacterial contamination
  • Have a waterproof outer film layer
  • Are available in multiple sizes

  • Choose a suitable size
  • Clean the skin around the wound to remove extra moisture
  • Place the dressing over the wound ensuring the edges do not crumple
  • When removing, lift one corner of the dressing and pull it back gently
