Directions

 

  • Clean wound with either soapy water (eg diluted Hibiscrub) or saline solution (eg Stericlens), rinse well and dry.

  • If proud flesh is present and more than half an inch thick, scrub it gently to produce a small amount of blood, pat dry.

  • Stir the Equaide well and paint on a thin layer of Equaide to the wound.  Equaide is a water-based solution, so if it has been stored for a while and the solution seems dry, simply add two or three drops of water and mix well.

  • Place a non-stick dressing on the wound (eg Melolin) and wrap with padding (eg Soffban) and a self adhering bandaging tape (eg Vetrap).

  • If desired, place a stable bandage over the bandaged area for further protection.

  • Keep wrapped for 1-2 days then repeat procedure with cleansing.  There is no need to remove all the Equaide each time you cleanse.  Just remove any exudate, pat dry and reapply Equaide to areas where it has rubbed off. 

  • Once proud flesh is no longer protruding above the level of the skin, bandage changes can be done every 2-3 days.
