“In a burn situation like this one (epidermis and part of dermis burned) the nerve endings are exposed, which causes pain. When applying 1 Primary Wound Dresssing, the nerve endings are coated with an oil film which leads to a fast and significant pain reduction. Since 1 Primary Wound Dressing supports healthy skin function, the elasticity of the newly formed skin is greater, which supports the mobility of the affected body part.”
