What are Grazes + Abrasions?
Abrasions are very common injuries that are usually caused by a fall onto a hard surface, during which friction causes layers of the skin to rub off (cyclists often refer to abrasions from crashes as ‘road rash’). While there is often little or no blood loss from an abrasion, there can be a great deal of pain because of the many nerve endings that are exposed.
How to treat Grazes + Abrasions?
The basic treatment of abrasions and road rash consists of cleaning the wound with mild soap and water or Prontosan® and then covering the area with a transparent dressing with absorbent pad to absorb excess fluid and protect the wound without adhering to it. Because abrasions can easily become infected, you should clean the area thoroughly and remove any dirt and debris; the area must be completely clean.
Directions For Use
- Wash hands before and after applying the dressing.
- Clean the wound area with gauze and clean water or Prontosan® and dry gently.
- Wait for the wound to stop bleeding.
- Peel away backing papers and apply the dressing centrally over the wound.
- Remove the top flaps following the arrows. To remove dressing, lift the edge of the dressing and stretch it towards you.
Do not use on an infected wound unless recommended by a physician.
If the wound bleeds or is swollen or painful within 7 days, seek medical advice.
People with Diabetes should consult a physician before using the dressing.
If you notice signs of infection on the wound site such as pain, redness, swelling or heat, you should seek medical advice.
