Burnshield Hydrogel soaked sterile dressing can be applied directly to a burn. An essential part of any household or office first-aid kit, Burnshield Burns Dressing contains Water and Natural Tea Tree Oil. The Burnshield Hydrogel Dressing is a gel soaked burn dressing which cools and soothes the affected skin, reduces swelling, and provides quick relief for painful burns. This gel soaked burns dressing has the exceptional ability to absorb and dissipate heat, which inhibits the burn’s progression and protects against infection. The cooling action of the Hydrogel Dressing helps to reduce swelling by carrying heat away from the skin. The gel consists of 96% water and has the same cooling effects as water, but because it is thick, it stays on the burn and evaporates at a very slow rate. Burnshield also contains the natural extract Melaleuca alternifolia, better known as Tea Tree Oil. This has antibacterial activity to help prevent infection. The initial care of a burn wound can have a considerable influence on the healing process as well as the cosmetic outcome. It is important to keep a burn wound clean, moist and covered – as opposed to open and dry – to aid the wound to heal more quickly and efficiently. Leaving a wound dry, open and uncovered can cause more scarring and also inhibits healing. The Burnshield Dressing provides a protective cooling barrier, giving fast pain relief, preventing infection and stopping the burn progressing. Cooling gel soaked burn dressings such as Burnshield are suitable for use on 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree burns and are often used by paramedics, hospitals, trauma and burns units. The easy-to-remove dressing is saturated with a sterile water based gel which is non-toxic, non-oily, non-irritant and does not contain any fats or greases. The cooling dressing can be applied directly to the burn, providing essential moisturise, while the soothing antiseptic tea tree oil cools the skin, thereby minimising trauma or continued tissue damage.
