1 Cleanse
Cleansing the wound from dirt and bacteria is an essential first step to enable optimal healing. To prevent wound infections, spray the Hansaplast Wound Spray from a distance of approximately 10 cm onto the entire wound area. Repeat if necessary, then gently dry the wound and surrounding skin area with a sterile compress. It can also be used for chronic wounds and postoperative wound care as per your doctor’s instructions. The Hansaplast Wound Spray also helps to remove crusts or clotted dressings. Important: A minor wound will soon stop bleeding. If it continues, apply more gauze pads, keep pressure on the wound and seek medical advice.
2 Protect
Gently dry the wound with a sterile soft compress. Next, it’s important to protect the wound from external influences like dirt and bacteria to enable undisturbed healing. Apply the compress and fix it using Hansaplast Fixation tape, Wide Area Fixation, Elastic Fixation Bandage or Cohesive Bandage. Change the dressing daily unless you’ve been recommended to do otherwise by your doctor. You might find this wound dressing know-how article useful.
3 Heal
Help your wound heal safely, quickly and with a lower risk of scarring. Apply Hansaplast Wound Healing Ointment daily until your wound has healed completely. Carefully apply a thin film one to two times per day. Make sure the opening of the tube does not get in contact with your wound. Repeat regularly until the healing is completed. The Hansaplast Wound Healing Ointment can be used on open minor superficial wounds and at any stage of the healing process. If necessary, cover the wound with a plaster, dressing or compress. If your wound is post-operative, please consider that step optionally and only when your wound is closed.
