Cleanse the wound site, rinse well and dry the surrounding skin. Unscrew the tube cap and remove the white safety ring. Replace the cap to puncture the tube membrane. Apply DuoDERM Gel directly into the wound. Do not fill the wound beyond the level of the surrounding skin. DuoDERM Gel should be changed when the cover dressing leaks or is removed for routine dressing changes. Maximum recommended wear time is seven days.


Do not use on individuals with a known sensitivity to the gel or its components. 1) Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of DuoDERM Gel. 2) Where infection is suspected or develops during the use of DuoDERM Gel, appropriate antibiotic therapy should be initiated. The use of DuoDERM Gel may be continued, but the progress of the wound should be monitored carefully and all treatments should be under medical supervision. In the presence of anaerobic infection, occlusive therapy is not recommended. 3)The control of blood glucose as well as appropriate pressure relief measures should be provided with diabetic foot ulcers. 4) The moist wound environment produced by the gel may result in autolytic debridement which may make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes. Store at up to 25ºC; avoid freezing.
