Duoderm CGF dressing

Unrelated randomness, just wanted to share.

This stuff is like synthetic skin, really thin, adhesive on one side. It’s intended for use on ulcerated skin, pressure wounds (a.k.a. bedsores), cuts and abrasions, any non-surgical application where a wound needs to be sealed from infection or crud or the elements.

Band-aid plus. But you can get it in big patches (up to 6″x6″ which is a huge patch of “skin.” Cuts easily with scissors to any size, peel off the backing and stick it on.

All I’ve got is a medium-sized blister from the first day in new work shoes. I was a little worried about pressure on a blister = pain, you know?

Nope. This stuff works beautifully for blisters, I was really impressed. No pain, protected my heel from additional rubbing making the blister worse, even peels off again without yowch,

I’ve used it for cuts and scrapes, even some big-ish ones in the past, no sweat there, either. Seeping wounds don’t seep. You can wear it for multiple days while the wound under it closes up. Trims to any size, bends around any “corner”, flexes fairly well (maybe not for knuckles?)

It’s more expensive than your average band-aid, but not ruinously expensive. Still working through the first box of the stuff we’ve ever owned, going on ten years later.

Good stuff. Will use again.

This stuff. You can get it from Amazon or drugstores.
