If necessary cover the wound with a plaster or dressing and change daily. For open wounds (without substantial breach of the dermis) and superficial bedsores (only under supervision of a doctor or a nurse): Apply a thick layer of Savlon Advanced Healing Gel (5 mm) onto the wound avoiding the wound edges. Cover with a sterile non-adhesive dressing and fix with gauze or a bandage. Leave in place as long as the gel structure is intact. Open wounds change daily.
