Medline Curad Xeroform Petrolatum Dressing is designed to absorb fluid from light draining wounds. It reduces trauma to the skin while changing the dressing. This dressing absorbs the wound fluid but keeps the wound moist to prevent dryness and scabbing. It has a non-adherent design that prevents the dressing from sticking to the wound. Curad Xeroform Gauze Dressing is impregnated with a 3% Bismuth Tribromophenate deodorizing agent that helps maintain moisture.
