Bactigras is an antiseptic soft paraffin dressing which soothes and protects the wound whilst helping to reduce wound infection and inflammation. It has low adherence and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing. It is impregnated with paraffin containing 0.5% chlorhexidine acetate. It is presented as individual dressings in peel-apart pouches. Bactigras can be used on wounds where there is a risk of infection or on already infected wounds if the person has been prescribed oral antibiotics.
