How/When to Use:

Gauze pads are used to treat minor cuts and scrapes. An essential item that should be included in your home, work, school, and vehicle first aid kit. Some wounds should be covered, while others should be left uncovered. Small wounds with minimal bleeding can be left uncovered for self-healing. However, if the cut on the body has heavier bleeding or is used often should be bandaged. Gauze pads protect wounds from dirt and bacteria which promote healing and the reduced risk of infection.  Clean the wound thoroughly then placing the gauze (that should be larger than the wound) over it. Secure the outer gauze with medical tape, unless self-adhesive. Bandages should be changed frequently. Remove the outer layer slowly as pulling it off quickly could cause further damage. Check for signs of infection before cleaning the wound and re-bandaging once more.
