    Default Derma-GeL - information and progressive pictures of its use

    Information about Derma-GeL:

    Derma GeLŪ is a hydrocolloid dressing providing a complete and easy wound management through: - hydrophillic properties (*)- long term moist environment- bacterial control- anti-inflammatory activity- protective film effect (**) (*) absorbing wound exudates.(**) ideal for uncovered wounds or to allow secondary dressing removal without adherence. Derma GeLŪ protects the wound bed from foreign contaminants, and enhances the environment essential to thorough wound healing. Non-cytogenotoxic and non sensitizing, Derma GeLŪ hydrates the wound bed with a non-drying hydrogel polymer and humectant combination.Derma GeLŪ ensures a vital moist environment where epithelial cells are bathed, favoring exponential cell multiplication and migration, increasing wound contraction rate which reduces healing time. The formula maintains its integrity over time without drying out.Derma GeLŪ forms a uniform porous barrier of protection, staying where it is applied.

    The progressive pictures and a brief story of Oreo, the domestic bunny:

    Oreo...4 week old bunny bitten by pet cat. Necrotic from chest to groin.
    With abscesses in the left and right front arms.
    When owners picked her up...her chest burst open. They didn’t know she was sick. She had been bitten 2 weeks previously.

    After each treatment the wound was washed and flushed with Saline, Derma-GeL was applied and followed with a moist dressing.

    Wow! That was amazing. Seems like something we should all keep on hand.
    When I saw that wound initially, I wondered if the poor little bub would even survive. Oreo had his miracle. A very lucky little one.
    Thanks for sharing.

    This is amazing. Great information to have. Even better to have a documented case like you have for us to view. I thought for sure Oreo would not make it by the looks of that wound. That was a terrible wound on that little bunny.
    Thank you, Betsy.

    THAT was nothing short of amazing. I would never have thought Oreo -- or any little animal -- could survive a wound like that. Ordering mine on Amazon, too....because if I don't, I'll need it tomorrow. Thank you for sharing this and all the pix, Betsy!

    I'm thinking we need a new topic under Specific Ailments for Wound Care. Now that I know how to create them, I'm on a roll.
