Wounds

  1. Hi,
    I have a patient with oozing head wounds. Painful to touch. Not sure what it is (wife shaved it - trying to get rid of it ! yikes - painful). Has anyone had success with a particular dressing to contain drainage and stay on the head. That seems to be the challenge. It is comfort - containment of drainage and aesthetics.
    Thanks for any help - will post on wound care as well.

    Is it something that you could put Aquacel AG in et cover with a hydrocolloid dressing? We have good success with the Aquacel AG absorbing the wound drainage to keep it clean. Then you still do the dressing Q3-5 days et PRN like you would a hydrocolloid. But I am not sure what kind of wound it is.
