In this case study of a Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis patient, treatment with a topical emollient, oil emulsion mesh contact layer and cover dressing was painful, provided poor exudate management and required frequent cumbersome applications. Switching to an absorbent soft silicone silver transfer foam dressing with a superabsorbent cover managed high volumes of exudate, extended antimicrobial therapy and was atraumatic. Results include rapid epithelialization within twelve days with less dressing changes and better pain control. The total estimated cost savings was $3,769.38.
