These gel soaked burns dressings are used by paramedics, hospitals, trauma and burns units and provides a protective cooling barrier giving immediate relief, preventing infection and preventing the burn progressing. The dressing is saturated with a sterile water based gel which is non toxic, non irritant and does not contain any fats or greases. The dressings moisturise the burn area and soothing antiseptic tea tree oil cools the skin thereby minimising trauma or continued tissue damage. The dressings are non adhesive and can be removed with cool water or saline without causing discomfort as the gel is water soluble. These dressings can be used on 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree burns including facial burns and scalds.
