Bactigras Medicated Paraffin Gauze Dressings


BACTIGRAS 10cmx10cm is a gauze dressing impregnated with paraffin, containing 0.5% chlorhexidine acetate. It is presented as individual dressings in peel-apart pouches.

BACTIGRAS acts as a barrier between the wound and a secondary dressing such as MELOLIN◊ low adherent wound dressing, allowing wound fluid to pass into the absorbent secondary dressing. The chlorhexidine acetate antiseptic is slowly released from the dressing, giving long-lasting action against a range of bacteria.

What BACTIGRAS is used for 

  • Minor burns
  • Grazes
  • Cuts

BACTIGRAS can be used on wounds where there is a risk of infection or on already infected wounds if the person has been prescribed oral antibiotics.
