RECOMMENDED USAGE

Medical hydrocolloid wound dressings are recommended for certain wounds and not all. Hydrocolloid dressing works best on wounds that are;


Clean, full thickness or partial thickness wounds- Wounds that are currently clean are great candidates for hydrocolloid dressings. Since hyrocolloids provide a barrier for the wound against outside bacteria, a clean wound will likely stay free of infection when placed under this type of dressing

Newly grown skin- Hydrocolloid’s unique flexible nature and water-resistant material provide a great second layer of protection over areas that have recently healed from surface trauma. 

Little or no discharge- Hydrocolloids 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, will cause the dressing to come loose. 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.


CAUTIONS

One thing to be aware of is that hydrocolloids take on an unpleasant odor when they absorb exudate. 

During dressing changes, this odor is very noticeable and is sometimes mistakenly interpreted as a sign of infection. 

When using hydrocolloids, be sure to cleanse the wound thoroughly before assessing for infection.
