Surgical wound dressings
If you are recovering from surgery at home or caring for someone who is, Walgreens.com has a wide selection of surgical wound dressings. Have the type and style dressing that your doctor recommended handy when shopping to make sure you choose the correct one. You'll find hydrocolloid dressings, hydrofiber dressings and dressings with hydrogel for different types of wounds. Try a surgical wound dressing from brands such as AQUACEL, Medline or dynarex.
Finding what you need
Shopping for surgical wound dressings can be daunting if you are unfamiliar with the different wound dressing types and how they are most often used. Foam wound dressings can help prevent bacterial contamination, and dressings with hydrogel can maintain a moist environment for better wound healing. Hydrofiber dressings are generally formulated to kill pathogens in the dressing. Hydrocolloid dressings can be used with dermal and pressure ulcers as well as other wounds that drain.
