Contrary to popular belief, scientific research has shown that leaving a wound to heal in dry air may actually prolong and irritate the healing process. Larger wounds are best protected with sterile wound dressings that cushion the wound. Covering a wound prevents contamination, reduces the risk of infection and ensures an undisturbed and optimal healing environment.
