A sacral dressing is a type of foam wound dressing used to treat pressure ulcers, bed sores, and other exuding wounds on the tailbone area. These wounds commonly occur in people who are confined to bed or sit for prolonged periods of time. The unique heart-like shape and foam pad take pressure off of the sacral area of the body to help the skin heal. The foam pad in sacrum dressings provides slight cushion to help minimize pain. All of the sacral dressings we carry have a unique adhesive border that allows the dressing to be removed and reapplied without losing adhesion. Mepilex Border and Allevyn Gentle Border are two of the most popular sacrum foam dressings.
