Hi PaulB,

I wasn’t speaking able domeboro wraps. In fact, I hadn’t heard of it until you mentioned it. I’m in Canada and the nurses just called it saline soaks. I didn’t have to buy anything for it. I even made my own saline solution using household salt. I found that it dried up the sores really quick and that meant there was less chance for weeping sores, infection and scarring. When my husband was in treatment, the doctors and nurses told me several times that I was doing a really good job looking after the skin on his neck. I just had to be diligent with applying the soaks.

Yes, I heard about using saline solution wraps, and and another I forget the name, but it’s posted someplace in search under domeborro begins with an H. I believe they’re for moist desquamification too, but never had to use any myself.
