Types of Gauze

Abrasion
Abrasion

Lifting the cloth, gauze, or bandage to check on the wound may cause additional bleeding, so it is important to continue to maintain firm pressure over the abrasion. If the bleeding soaks or seeps through the dressing, apply an additional layer and continue to maintain pressure. Further bleeding, if unable to be stopped within about 10-20 minutes, should be assessed by a medical provider.

Alginate
Alginate

Calcium alginate was significantly less painful to remove after operation (P less than 0.01), and also easier to remove (P less than 0.01) than gauze dressings. If abscess cavities are packed after incision and drainage, calcium alginate appears to be an improvement on conventional dressings [1].

Collagen

Collagen, the protein that gives the skin its tensile strength, plays a key role in each phase of wound healing. It attracts cells, such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes, to the wound, which encourages debridement, angiogenesis, and reepithelialization. In addition, collagen provides a natural scaffold or substrate for new tissue growth.
