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 time daily). If necessary, cover the wound with a plaster or dressing and change 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.

Why should I use Flamigel®?

Flamigel® supports faster healing of the wound by creating an optimal moist wound healing environment. Flamigel® hydroactive colloid formulation can quickly help soothe pain of minor wounds due to its cooling effect. Flamigel® helps to create optimal healing conditions to accelerate cell renewal, allowing the wound to heal faster and reducing the likelihood of scarring. Flamigel® also provides a barrier against external contamination.

In radiotherapy Flamigel® reduces the incidence of moist desquamation and delays its occurrence should it still occur.

How do Flaminal® Hydro and Flaminal® Forte control and maintain bacterial balance?

Step 1: Flaminal® (Hydro & Forte) absorb exudate pus and bacteria into its structure

Step 2: The enzyme system consists of two enzymes, glucose oxidase and lactoperoxidase.

The first enzyme, glucose oxidase forms a peroxide. The second enzyme, lactoperoxidase immediately captures the peroxide and transforms it into oxygen radicals (ROS, Reactive Oxygen Species). These radicals destroy the bacterial cell wall. This is a selective process. Only bacteria are destroyed and not human cells, such as keratinocytes and fibroblasts.

Was this answer helpful?

NoYes

Thank you for your feedback.

Can antibiotics be administered at the same time as Flaminal® (Hydro & Forte)?

Systemic antibiotics can be used at the same time. When a wound is infected, antibiotics may be indicated. Infection is caused by bacteria infiltrating the deeper tissue layers of the wound. These bacteria are not adequately inhibited or destroyed by a topically applied antibacterial product. However, some chronic wounds have poor blood flow and only small amounts of antibiotics may reach the wound. Ask your doctor or wound clinician for advice.
