Jelonet is a soft paraffin dressing that is not medicated, making it ideal for use with topical antibiotics or antiseptics. It is soothing and low-adherent, and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing. Jelonet is available in a wide range of sizes, the largest of which is suitable for use in burns units.
