Directions for use
Manuka Wound Gel is indicated as a contact layer for wounds such as:
Manuka Wound Gel provides natural debridement of the wound.
The wound may therefore appear larger after the initial dressing change.
The honey present in Manuka Wound Gel will be gradually diluted by exudate and absorbed into the secondary dressing.
Wounds subject to arterial insufficiency, diabetic conditions or signs of infection should be managed by a healthcare professional. Any experience of a reaction other than a short lasting stinging sensation, remove the dressing and wash the affected area. Not for use on heavily exudating wounds. Manuka Wound Gel is not recommended for body cavities. DO NOT use on patients with known hypersensitivity to honey. In the event of a slow or non-responding wound please seek medical advice.
