Hydrocolloid dressing

1. What is a Hydrocolloid dressing?

Hydrocolloid dressing is a new type of wound dressing developed under the guidance of the wet healing principle. Hydrocolloid dressing is made of elastic polymeric hydrogel mixed with synthetic rubber and mucilage. It is a commonly used clinical wound dressing, and the main component is sodium carboxymethyl cellulose ( CMC ) synthetic elastomer. The gel can firmly adhere to the skin at the edge of the wound, absorb the wound exudate, and maintain the wetness and sealing of the wound, thus providing a good healing environment for the wound and promoting the autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue.

Hydrocolloid dressing can be applied to treat many different wounds, especially chronic refractory wounds, with significant efficacy, shortening the wound healing time, and is suitable for treating chronic granulation tissue wounds with well-controlled inflammation.
