    1. Open the packaging and remove the dressing. If required, cut to appropriate size allowing at least 1 cm overlap of the scar area. >br> 2. Before applying Mepiform make sure the scar area and surrounding skin are clean and dry. If used together with ointment or cream, ensure that the dressing covers the treated area and adheres to dry skin.

    4. Remove the dressing at least once per day for inspection and washing of the skin. The dressing can then be reapplied.
