How do I use Flamigel®?
  • Wash your hands before and after treating the wound.
  • Clean and dry the wound gently before applying Flamigel®.
  • For superficial burns and minor wounds (e. g. grazes, cuts): Carefully apply Flamigel® to the wound (without rubbing) once or twice a day (in case of sunburn apply twice to six times daily). If necessary, cover the wound with a plaster or dressing and change it daily.
  • For superficial open wounds: Apply a thick layer of Flamigel® (5 mm) to the wound minimizing contact with the wound edges, cover Flamigel® with a sterile non-adhesive dressing and fix with a gauze or bandage. Leave Flamigel® in place as long as the gel structure is intact. Renew Flamigel® when it has disappeared. When new skin cells start to form and the wound is closing, apply only a thin layer of Flamigel® to prevent weakening. If necessary, protect the wound edges.
  • For open wounds: Change daily. Removing the gel: Wash hands before and after removing Flamige®l. Flamigel® can be removed simply and painlessly with wet gauze.
