Moist wound healing is a relatively new method in wound care that is widely used in hospitals. This type of
healing occurs when the new wound is covered, and remains sealed with a protective, breathable dressing. This keeps the wound moist by containing
the body's own fluid.
Benefits of a moist wound healing environment include:
Prevents scab formation
Less pain - nerve endings are protected by the moisture
