    Step 3:
    - Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture
    - Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound
    Step 4:
    Using aseptic technique remove the protector material from Allevyn Ag Gentle and apply the adherent side to the wound ensuring good contact all the way around and secure with a dressing retention sheet e.g. Opsite Flexifix, tape or bandage

    - Allevyn Ag Gentle can be cut to fit awkward areas
    - Always use aseptic technique when cutting the dressing

    - Allevyn Ag Gentle can be used in combination with other methods of treatment e.g. compression therapy, under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
    - When used under compression the dressing must be cut to the size of the wound without overlapping on to surrounding skin and care taken to ensure that the dressing is adhered in position before compression bandages are applied
