Hello there,

What are the differences between these two? Where would you use one over the other? Why wouldn't you use one on a specific wound?

Kind Regards,

Marmo

TL;DR atrauman is a non-adherant dressing and isn't medicated. Inadine is medicated as it is impregnanted with iodine and has some antibacterial action.
