My husband's recent toe infection and amputation taught me quite a lesson in wound care. A visiting nurse came out every day to treat his wound, and I usually watched her to see what she did.
I noticed some of the products the nurse would use, and one of them was Kendall Curity Gauze Sponges. The sponges were 12 ply and 4 in x 4 in. She would use these sponges for cleaning the wound and also for dressing it. They come in sterile packets and seem to be made from very soft material. I know my husband did not have any irritation from them the entire time they were used on his wound.
I have always trusted the Curity label, so I felt assured that these sponges were going to be safe and effective for taking care of my husband's wound. They were very sterile and seemed easy for the nurse to work with. I also liked the fact that the material was easy on the skin. When there is a bad infection and wound, the skin is even more prone to sensitivity, but no problem with these sponges.
I was impressed again with the Curity brand.
