Your wound has been repaired using exoﬁn® Precision Pen. The list below is a guide for you to understand and care for your wound following your procedure.
You may occasionally and briefly wet your wound in the shower at the direction of your physician, but do not soak or scrub the wound area. After showering, gently blot the wound dry with a soft towel.
Do not apply liquid or ointment medications, lotions, creams, petroleum jelly, mineral oils or any other product to your wound while the exoﬁn® adhesive ﬁlm is in place.
Doing so may compromise the integrity of the wound closure and cause scarring.
Do not use tanning lamps while the ﬁlm is in place.
Some swelling, redness, and pain are common with all wounds and normally will go away as the wound heals. If swelling, redness, or pain increases, or if the wound feels warm to the touch, contact your doctor. Also contact your doctor if the wound edges reopen or separate.
By this time, your wound should be sufﬁciently healed. This information is intended for educational purposes only, and does not substitute for professional medical advice.
