Learn About Dukal Xeroform Petrolatum Gauze Dressing

Xeroform Gauze Petrolatum Dressing clings and conforms to all body contours without sticking to the wound. Provides soothing non-adherent protection with more convenience and less mess. Includes a special deodorizing agent – 3% bismuth tribomophenate. Non-toxic, non-sensitive, and non-irritating. An oil-resistant paper wrap folded over the dressing protects it within the peel-open foil-lined pouch and greatly simplifies handling. Whether using forceps or gloved hands, the xeroform gauze dressing is easily taken out of its package without sticking or pad distortion. The folded edges of the inner wrap pull neatly away from the dressing with minimum adherence. The xeroform gauze dressings are useful as an initial layer in surgical dressings and on skin graft sites, for soothing treatment of first-degree burns and abrasions, and as wound packing.
