Mepilex Foam Dressing 10x10cm 5 Pack

Mepilex® absorbent foam dressing is trusted around the world to treat a wide range of chronic and acute wounds. The product is easily conformable and highly absorbent, to effectively manage wound exudate.

Every Mepilex wound dressing includes Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. Dressings with Safetac® are clinically demonstrated to minimise damage to the wound and skin at removal 1 2 . By sealing the wound margins, they help prevent maceration 3 4 .
