Microdacyn Hydrogel is a unique product to prevent infection and provide faster healing for all wound types. Microdacyn is a super-oxidised hydrogel which:
A hydrogel has the additional role of adding moisture to the wound. Moist wound healing acheives the best results - never dry out a wound.
Importantly Microdacyn is non-damaging to our own cells that are involved in healing. Products that contain the ingredients chlorhexidine, hydrogen peroxide or povidone iodine are highly damaging to our cells which can result in stinging as well as slower healing.
Stop using creams for wound care! Did you know guidelines recommend using solutions and hydrogels only. Creams contain many additional ingredients that do not help heal a wound, and can actually slow healing.
Microdacyn hydrogel is used in many of New Zealands district health boards, hospitals and clinics. ACC recommend Microdacyn hydrogel use for all wouund types to reduce infection and aid healing (2017).
Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist please see your healthcare professional.
