DuoDERM® Control Gel Formula (CGF) Dressing is a hydrocolloid, moisture-retentive wound dressing used for partial- and full-thickness wounds with exudate. DuoDERM® CGF® Dressing may be used for minor abrasions, lacerations, minor cuts, minor scalds and burns and skin tears.
This is a flexible waterproof dressing used to cover your burn/scald and reduce infection. When in contact with the wound, Duoderm forms a gel-like covering which can remain untouched for several days, but will need changing if leakage occurs.
Under normal conditions, DuoDerm can be left on the wound for 3-4 days. One of the advantages to using DuoDerm is that, unlike other dressings, it can be placed on wet wounds and wet surrounding skin and will remain in place due to the product’s ‘wet tact’.
