How to use Linitul Dressing
Always take this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt ask your doctor or pharmacist.
The recommended dose is:
The presentation of Linitul impregnated dressing appropriate to the size of the affected area will be used.
The dressing is applied covering the affected area, ensuring that the skin is clean and dry, and it is renewed every 12 or 24 hours, and can be maintained for longer if the treatment requires it.
If after 15 days of treatment the lesions worsen or do not improve, the clinical status should be reevaluated.
Instructions for use
Cutaneous use (on the skin).
Linitul should be used immediately after opening the envelope or box. It should not be reused once used.
To apply Linitul Dressing, preferably use tweezers previously disinfected with alcohol.
Make sure the skin is clean and dry.
Remove the Linitul dressing from its container and rest on the affected area. In Linitul single-dose presentations (5.5x8, 9x15 and 15x25) open the envelope by pulling the tabs to the end and slide the dressing dragging it over the aluminum to collect the impregnation mass, which would otherwise remain on the aluminum walls . In the case of Linitul 8,5x10, the polystyrene box will be carefully closed after use. Unfold the dressing if your size requires it (presentations 9x15 and 15x25).
Apply the dressing with the forceps, so that it covers the affected area.
Cover the dressing with a protective bandage.
