Appeel Sterile

I recently used the Appeel Sterile wipe on my 83 year old mother-in-law who’d had to undergo several procedures recently in connection with a medical diagnosis. As an 83 year old her skin is now quite thin and she’s a very slight, small, woman, so her skin has been quite bruised around needle insertion points on the top of her hand and inside of her upper arm, where the elbow bends. She was worried about removal of the small dressing placed and had asked us just to “remove it as quick as you can”. I’d been provide a couple of the Appeel sterile wipes. I’d been told to stroke them gently around the dressing, which I did, and within a very short time the edges of the dressing started to lift so I then continued that stroking movement under the dressing and close to where it was adhering to her skin. Within just a few moments, we managed to remove the dressing with no discomfort to Mum. I’d definitely use these again and would recommend that every elderly patient (and/or their carer) be provided with them to make the dressing removal as ours was. 83 year old shouldn’t have to feel any discomfort when their dressing is removed
