Leg ulcers are painful. It is important to try and reduce this pain as much as possible, using a dressing that protects the wound and doesn't harm the surrounding skin.
Some dressings can take off the ‘top’ of the wound (the ‘wound bed’) and the skin around the wound, which again can be painful. You will need to use a dressing that protects the wound and the surrounding skin.
If you have a venous leg ulcer, you must have compression therapy. Speak to your healthcare professional.
Mölnlycke Health Care dressings have a special, gentle adhesive which means that they cause little or no pain when they are taken off. This is called Safetac® technology.
