How to use Vivamel

Changing Vivamel dressings with medical chestnut honey must be adapted to each individual or the condition of their wound. If the exudate level is high, the dressing is changed every day and, if necessary, several times a day (usually at the onset of the wound healing process). After a couple of changes, the inflammation of the wound is reduced, so the period between dressing changes is
gradually extended to 2-3 days. In case of a wound with little or no exudate, Vivamel dressing can stay on the wound for 3-4 days.

Possible occurrence of pain and its relief

In some patients, there may be a transient burning sensation caused by the fluid being withdrawn from the wound (i.e. osmotic pressure) due to the high sugar content of the honey. As the oedema and the amount of excretion reduce, the feeling is weakened – the burning sensation decreases from one dressing change to the next.

Mental preparation of the patient (understanding the osmotic effect of the honey) and additional strategies for persons with painful ulcers, such as gradual expansion of the surface of the wound bed covered with the dressing (smaller surfaces at the beginning) and/or pain therapy in consultation with the doctor.

Contraindications and caution

Although an allergic reaction to honey is not very common, the use of Vivamel products is not recommended for people allergic to honey. In patients with bee sting allergy, we recommend using
Vivamel under medical supervision.

Vivamel products are intended for healing both acute and chronic wounds.
