Bactigras is an antiseptic, soft paraffin dressing which soothes and protects the wound whilst helping to reduce wound infection and inflammation. It has low adherence and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing. It is impregnated with paraffin, containing 0.5% chlorhexidine acetate. It is presented as individual dressings in peel-apart pouches. 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.
How to use

Leg ulcers, where the wound is no more than 10% of the body area, where there is a risk of infection, or on already infected wounds in conjunction with systemic antibiotics.
Contraindications/Precautions: Bactigras should not be used on more than 10% of the body area. Dermatitis, contact sensitivity or photo-sensitivity may rarely occur.
