Antimicrobial wound contact layer
Antimicrobial wound contact layer for exuding burns and wounds

It's designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, sutured/surgical wounds, partial thickness burns, partial and full thickness grafts, lacerations, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers and arterial ulcers.
