FAQ’s

1. What are hydrocolloid dressings made of?

2. What types of wounds are suitable for hydrocolloids?

Although some hydrocolloid dressings are absorbent hydrocolloid dressings are best used on dry wounds, since the dressing itself provides a somewhat moist healing environment. When used on wounds that produce a lot of exudate, or a lot of fluid, may cause the dressing to come loose. 

3. How often should the dressing be changed? 

Hydrocolloid dressing can be worn for long periods of time, however, hydrocolloid dressings need to be changed every three to seven days, so if you find your dressing is coming loose after a couple of days, this may just mean new compound should be applied.
