Smith & Nephew Iodosorb Ointment 10g Cadexomer Iodine Medicated Ointment

$49.95 Incl. GST

Iodosorb* ointment is a sterile formulation of cadexomer iodine. When applied to the wound, Iodosorb cleans it by absorbing fluids, removing exudate, pus and debris and forming a gel over the wound surface. As the ointment swells, iodine is released, killing bacteria in the wound.
