Many patients and medical staff suffer from cracked or damaged skin that can be painful and difficult to manage. Barrier films and barrier creams are similar products that can help prevent skin breakdown and improve patient care.
Alpha Medical Solutions supplies high-quality medical supplies such as Cavilon barrier cream to medical offices, hospitals, aged care, and dental offices across Australia. Barrier films can be used on wounds and areas of skin irritation to prevent additional infections. Medical staff can also use barrier creams for the hands to avoid dry and cracked skin due to excessive cleaning and cold weather.
What is the difference between barrier cream and barrier film?
Barrier cream is a product that is applied to damaged skin as a thick cream or ointment. Barrier film has a similar function as the cream but is dispensed as a thin clear spray, wipe, or foam.
What should barrier cream be used for?
Barrier creams should be applied to dry skin in a very thin layer. When the cream needs to be changed, all of the previously applied product should be removed from the skin before another thin layer is applied.
What should barrier film be used for?
Barrier films can be used on broken or intact skin to prevent infections. Barrier films can offer up to 72 hours of protection, depending on the brand used.
