Occlusive dressings may be used for the management of psoriasis or recalcitrant conditions.
If an infection develops, the use of Cordran Tape and other occlusive dressings should be discontinued and appropriate antimicrobial therapy instituted.
Replacement of the tape every 12 hours produces the lowest incidence of adverse reactions, but it may be left in place for 24 hours if it is well tolerated and adheres satisfactorily. When necessary, the tape may be used at night only and removed during the day.
If ends of the tape loosen prematurely, they may be trimmed off and replaced with fresh tape.
The directions given below are included for the patient to follow unless otherwise instructed by the physician.
APPLICATION OF CORDRAN TAPE
|IMPORTANT: Skin should be clean and dry before tape is applied. Tape should always be cut, never torn.|
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Prepare skin as directed by your physician or as follows: Gently clean the area to be covered to remove scales, crusts, dried exudates, and any previously used ointments or creams. A germicidal soap or cleanser should be used to prevent the development of odor under the tape. Shave or clip the hair in the treatment area to allow both good contact with the skin and comfortable removal. If shower or tub bath is to be taken, it should be completed before the tape is applied. The skin should be dry before application of the tape.
Remove tape from package and cut a piece slightly larger than area to be covered. Round off corners.
Pull white paper from transparent tape. Be careful that tape does not stick to itself.
Apply tape, keeping skin smooth; press tape into place.
REPLACEMENT OF TAPE:
Unless instructed otherwise by your physician, replace tape after 12 hours. Cleanse skin and allow it to dry for 1 hour before applying new tape.
IF IRRITATION OR INFECTION DEVELOPS, REMOVE TAPE AND CONSULT PHYSICIAN.
