Q
What is an unna boot/wrap?

A

We use unna wraps for specific types of injuries and swelling.  By some, it's referred to as a "soft cast" composed mainly of zinc oxide to reduce inflammatory response.  The wrap provides a soothing effect along with compression, reducing swelling with three days of wear.  We advise our patients to avoid getting the wrap wet and to unravel it the same way it was applied to avoid cutting the skin.
