Mepilex Border is an all-in-one foam dressing that effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain.

These dressings are wonderful, especially when your care instructions require you to use one for several days before removal. They really stay in place and best of all you can take your daily shower without having to worry that your wound will be saturated with water and shower gel. I like to keep a full pack in my medicine drawer at all times. In my mind they are well worth the price.
