Jelonet is a sterile paraffin dressing made from open weave gauze.


  • Jelonet is a sterile gauze dressing, impregnated with a soft paraffin base. Manufactured by Smith & Nephew, Jelonet is soothing & will not stick to the wound. It allows the wound to drain freely into the secondary absorbent dressing (eg cotton wool). The gauze has interlocking threads which minimise fraying & allow the dressing to be cut to shape. Jelonet is not medicated, & so can be used with topical antiseptics or antiobiotics creams or liquids. Available in single packs, packs of 10 or 36.
