Bactigras Dressing

Bactigras is a medicated paraffin gauze dressing (Tulle Gras).


  • Soft paraffin base
  • Sterile leno weave presentation
  • Contains Chlorhexidine acetate 0.5%, an antiseptic with a broad spectrum


  • Soothes and protects the wound and allows free passage of viscous exudate
  • Bactigras is soothing and low-adherent and allows the wound to drain freely into an absorbent secondary dressing.
  • Maintains shape, resists fraying: Bactigras is a sterile paraffin Tulle Gras dressing made from open weave gauze. The gauze has interlocking threads which minimise fraying when the dressing is cut to shape.
  • Reduces risk of infection: The antiseptic efficacy of Bactigras is unaffected by serum and blood. Demonstrated to be effective in-vitro and in-vivo against MRSA. Reduces the risk of colonisation. Proven antiseptically active against a wide range of Gram positive and Gram negative organisms.

Indications - Bactigras is intended for use as a wound contact layer for wounds such as:

  • Minor burns and scalds
  • Lacerations, abrasions and other skin loss wounds
  • Donor and recipient graft sites
  • Leg ulcers, where the wound is no more than 10% of the body area, where there is a risk of infection, or on already infected wounds in conjunction with systemic antibiotics.

Contraindications / Precautions

  • Bactigras should not be used on more than 10% of the body area.
  • Dermatitis, contact sensitivity or photosensitivity may rarely occur. Anaphylactic reaction to chlorhexidine has been reported, but is rare.

  • Bactigras is incompatible with soaps, other anionic materials, as well as potassium iodide.
  • The use of Bactigras with oxidising wound cleaning agents should be avoided
