The closing of a chronic wound is a complicated process in which many factors impact on the skin’s recovery. One important factor is the health and cleanliness of the surrounding skin (the edges of the wound). This is because a new layer of skin has to grow from the edge of the wound to close it. If the edge of the wound is not healthy and clean, the wound can become even more severely damaged.
ALHYDRAN protects the edge of the wound
ALHYDRAN forms a protective layer over this important but delicate skin. ALHYDRAN can be used to protect, hydrate and care for both the edges of wounds and the newly-closed skin.
The following real-life examples are from patients with wounds treated with ALHYDRAN.
These case studies show pictures of real people, some of whom have very severe skin disorders. Some people may find looking at these pictures shocking. If you are less than 12 years old and you are looking for information for a school project, ask an adult to look at them with you or contact us for suitable information.
