- Remove the liners of the Medihoney Gel Sheet before applying to the wound.
- Place the dressing onto the wound surface ensuring the dressing is in contact with the wound bed.
- A suitable non-adherent sterile pad or dressing should be applied to cover the sheet. The dressing should be sufficiently absorbent to manage wound exudate.

How often should the Medihoney Gel Sheet be Changed?
The gel sheet requires changing when the dressing has gelled and has been diluted by wound exudate. Dressings may be left in place for up to 7 days on non-exudating wounds. More frequent changing is required on exudating wounds where the frequency of change is dependant on the level of exudate. If maceration* of the surrounding skin occurs more frequent changing of the dressing is required.(over-hydrated, whitish-colored tissue due to excess moisture)
Do not use on individuals who have had an allergic reaction to honey or sodium alginate.
