Hydrogel Bandages For Treatment Of Minor Burns And Scalds
A burn is a type of injury characterized by damage to the body’s tissue caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, or radiation. Burns can result in varying degrees of skin swelling, blistering, and scarring and it typically takes three to 20 days for a minor burn to heal properly.
Annually in the United States, there are 40,000 hospitalizations related to burn injuries and a total of 486,000 burn injuries require medical treatment.
Using Hydrogel Bandages for Burn Care
Hydrogel bandages can be highly effective for treating minor burns and scalds. The hydrogel composition of the bandage helps soothe and cool the skin on contact, helping reduce overall pain and discomfort. The absorbing properties of hydrogels helps promote an optimal moist healing environment while managing the burn’s exudate. Hydrogel bandages can be waterproof, highly conformable and provide bacterial and viral protection.
