Tegaderm Waterproof Transparent Dressing is the No. 1 hospital brand in transparent dressings. Unique properties make it flexible with your body and breathable for greater comfort while protecting abrasions, cuts, minor burns, blisters and post-surgical incisions. It is waterproof, staying on in the bath or shower, and seals out water, dirt and germs to help prevent infection. Tegaderm Dressing can be worn for up to seven days, making it ideal for securing IV catheters or other tubing, and for post-surgical dressings. With all that, it is still gentle on the skin, protecting even reddened or fragile skin. Transparent Dressings are also hypoallergenic and made from latex-free materials.
