Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing is thin, absorbent and highly conformable. Oval film border seals to prevent premature dressing failure due to edge lift. Hydrocolloid thin dressing may be used on intact skin to protect from friction. Breathable outer film layer protects from contaminants, body fluids, bacteria and viruses. Tegaderm is ideal for superficial, dry to lightly exuding, partial thickness dermal ulcers and skin tears, or may be used as a protective covering over fragile skin or newly-healed skin.
