    Bactigras is an antiseptic, soft paraffin dressing that soothes and protects the wound whilst helping to reduce wound infection and inflammation. It has low adherence and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing. Bactigras is suitable for covering wounds such as minor burns, lacerations, abrasions, and graft sites.

    Features:

    • Soft paraffin base
    • Sterile open-weave gauze presentation
    • Contains chlorhexidine which is an active agent against a wide range of bacteria
    • Reduces risk of infection
    • Wide range of sizes
    • Soothing and low-adherent

    Benefits:

    • Soothes and protects the wound and allows free passage of viscous exudate
    • Open-weave gauze helps maintain shape and resist fraying when dressing is cut to shape
    • Effective against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including MRSA
    • Antiseptic efficacy unaffected by serum and blood

    Contraindications / Precautions

    • Should not be used on more than 10% of body area
    • Dermatitis, contact sensitivity or photosensitivity may rarely occur
    • Anaphylactic reaction to chlorhexidine has been reported, but is rare
