Tegaderm Film has a "frame" and "first aid" delivery system that makes placement quick and easy. This Waterproof yet Breathable film dressing provides a bacterial and viral barrier to outside contaminants and allows the patient to shower.

There is an outside rim of sticky tape so if the wound could be entirely covered, then I think it might work as the dressing itself does not stick to the wound. It adsorbs a great deal of oozing or drainage and still maintains the wound cover - like a diaper soaks up fluids. Because the drainage is so heavy in our situation, I have to use paper tape around the bottom to keep it closed.
