Precautions to take while using Medihoney Wound Dressing

  • If the Medihoney Wound dressing is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
  • Due to the Medihoney Alginate low pH, some patients may notice a slight transient stinging. If stinging does not stop or persists and cannot be managed with an analgesic, remove the dressing, cleanse area, and discontinue the use of Medihoney dressing
  • During initial use of the dressing (depending on wound exudate levels, interstitial fluid, and edema surrounding the wound), the dressings high osmotic potential may contribute to increased exudate, which could lead to maceration if the excess moisture is not managed appropriately. Manage additional moisture by adding an absorptive cover dressing and/or adjusting the frequency of dressing change. Protect the peri-wound skin by applying a skin barrier protectant to the surrounding skin.
  • During the healing process, it is common for non-viable tissue to be removed from the wound resulting in an initial increase in wound size. Although an initial increase in wound size may be attributed to the normal removal of non-viable tissue, consult a healthcare professional if the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes.
