  • 1. What is StrataXRT?
     

    StrataXRT is a self-drying, non-sticky, transparent, wound dressing in the form of a gel that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer. It was specifically developed for the prevention and treatment of radiation dermatitis.

  • 2. How does StrataXRT work?
     

    StrataXRT dries to form a thin, flexible wound dressing which hydrates and protects affected skin areas. StrataXRT has no measurable pH value which is why it does not affect the fragile acid mantle of the skin. StrataXRT helps to promote a moist wound healing environment for widespread superficial wounds and burns. StrataXRT is a self-drying, non-sticky, transparent, gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer. This moist wound healing environment promotes faster re-epithelialization* and significantly reduces the skin’s acute inflammatory response seen with both dry and wet desquamation from radiation dosing or first and second degree burns.

    In dry desquamation, StrataXRT protects the fragile epidermis and maintains the skin’s integrity, preventing the outmost layers from excessive sloughing.

    In moist desquamation, StrataXRT protects the dermal stroma from long-term deterioration whilst optimizing the environment for the healing process and reducing the risk of infection. StrataXRT is ideal for large surface areas and contoured skin like breasts, face, back and pelvic area. It is also idea for joints and hairy areas without the need for shaving prior to application.

  • 3. After applying StrataXRT, the gel does not dry within the recommended time. What is the reason for this?
     

    When applied correctly, StrataXRT should be dry in 5 to 6 minutes. If it takes longer to dry you have probably applied too much. Gently remove the excess with a tissue or gauze and allow the drying process to continue.

    More

  • 4. Should I continue to apply StrataXRT after finishing the radiation treatment?
     

    Continue to apply StrataXRT for a minimum of 60–90 days (24 hours a day / 7 days a week) post radiation therapy, or until no further improvement is seen.

    For chronic radiation dermatitis, continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen.

    More

  • 5. When can I start to apply StrataXRT?
     

    It is recommended to apply StrataXRT following the initial radiation dose or on first and/or second degree burns.

    More

  • 6. Can I use StrataXRT while taking oral medication?
     

    Yes. StrataXRT does not interfere with oral medication.

    More

  • 7. What do I do if StrataXRT gets into my eyes?
     

    Try to flush StrataXRT out as soon as possible. The best method of removal is to wash out the eyes with an eye wash solution or if none is available, tap water. The most important point is to use a generous amount of water to ensure StrataXRT is completely flushed out of the eye. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

    More

  • 8. What does bacteriostatic mean?
     

    If a product is bacteriostatic it will stop bacteria from reproducing, but not necessarily kill them. Upon removal of the bacteriostatic product, the bacteria usually start to grow again. This stands in contrast to bactericides, which kill bacteria.
