DuoDERM Extra Thin



Sterile, thin hydrocolloid dressing. The adhesive layer contains elastomeric polymers which enhance the dressing’s ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel.


Chronic wounds: dry to lightly exuding wounds, e.g. leg ulcers, superficial pressure ulcers. Acute wounds: surgical wounds, e.g. postoperative wounds, minor burns, abrasions or lacerations. May be used as a secondary dressing.
