|Abstract: ||Hydrocolloids are interactive dressings which are well established in wound
management. Because of their sophisticated composition, they can be used to
manage a variety of wound types, from clean and granulating to sloughy and
necrotic. While they may be more expensive per item than many other modern
dressings, if used correctly they can be cost-effective, as they have a longer
wear time. Hydrocolloid formulations appear to be changing and improving with
ongoing research by manufacturers, but a significant limitation appears to be
sensitivity reactions. Dressings that would benefit from improvement are those
containing gelatin, and those containing colophony within the adhesive matrix.
These known sensitizers are largely unpublicized, but can produce serious side-
effects in some individuals.|
