Product Overview

Smith & Nephew Allevyn Polyurethane Foam Dressings - Hydrocellular, Non-adhesive

Hydrocellular Polyurethane Dressing

Highly absorbent

In-vitro studies and clinical experience both demonstrate that ALLEVYN non-adherent dressings can stay in place for up to seven days.

This capacity results from a combination of properties:

  • The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing.
  • The hydrocellular core of the dressing absorbs and retains liquid in its microscopic structure.
  • The breathable outer surface of the dressing allows excess moisture to evaporate away from the dressing.
The result is the creation of a wound environment, which allows healing to progress.

ALLEVYN dressings have a polyurethane wound contact layer which prevents adherence to a full range of wound types.

Helps create and maintain a moist wound environment
The outer, pink layer used on ALLEVYN dressings is a breathable film layer. This allows the formation and maintenance of a moist wound environment at the wound surface, which helps prevent eschar formation. The pink film is also waterproof and aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination.

ALLEVYN dressings are non-adhesive and are therefore recommended for wounds surrounded by sensitive skin, such as venous ulcers. The lack of adhesive allows the use of the most suitable retention method, for example, tape onto intact skin, appropriate bandaging or a film dressing such as OPSITE.

Easy to use
ALLEVYN dressings are conformable and can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. As ALLEVYN dressings absorb exudate, they may swell slightly, but do not leave debris in the wound. Dressing changes are therefore easier for the nurse and less traumatic for the patient; wound irrigation can be kept to a minimum. The progression of exudate through the dressing is visible through the pink top film.

Soft and cushioning
ALLEVYN dressings are soft and cushioning, providing excellent patient comfort.


  • ALLEVYN Hydrocellular Foam Dressing is indicated for exudate absorption and the management of partial to full thickness wounds. Some typical wounds are:

  • Ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic)
    Pressure Sores
    Donor Sites
    Surgical Incisions
    Surgical Excisions
    Burns (1st and 2nd degree)

  • Creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment. Moist wound environments have been established as optimal environments for the management of the wound.
  • Provides physical separation between the wound and external environments to assist in preventing bacterial contamination of the wound.

Do not use ALLEVYN dressings with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. Dakins) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent hydrocellular component of the dressing.

Reddening of the skin around the wound has been reported rarely following the use of ALLEVYN dressings. In some cases this relates to irritation of fragile skin, in others, wound exudate remaining in contact with normal skin for prolonged periods may be the cause.

Infrequently, cases of sensitivity to the dressing have also been reported.

If reddening or sensitization occur, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.

ALLEVYN Hydrocellular Foam Dressing is not indicated for use on third degree burns.

These Dressings are fantastic!

Easy to use.
Best Uses:
Sores hard to heal.
Describe Yourself:
Long time user. confined to wheelchair.

I have sores on my buttocks and legs from sitting all the time. These dressings work wonders. They do not have adhesive, so you can cut them to fit. They provide a cushion for the wound. They seem to promote healing because they allow air flow.

Describe Yourself:

I'm surprised this product is so low on the bestseller list. This is the product used by the hospital wound care clinic on my mom's leg wounds from lymphedema, used along with Iodozorb. My mom has been gone a few years. Now my dad has lymphatic leg wounds and diabetes type II. We had been getting by using Tefla pads and gauze rolls. I had forgotten the Smith and Nephew brand until I found an old stash of wound care supplies. This is the stuff that really works! After light debridement, I press Iodozorb into the draining wound areas with a sterile tongue depressor. Then I place Allevyn pad(s) over the area and wrap the lower leg with a J&J Kling gauze roll. Finish with 3M Micropore tape. I've been leaving the wound wrap on for two or three days and if the pads adhere to the leg, letting them soak off in the shower. If infection is a threat, sterile saline solution would be better.

The allevyn dressing is just used to keep the area moist. It should be used with a wound dressing, and they should both be changed at the same time. According to the doctor's instructions.
