BLANCO BLANCO, Joan  y  ALEXANDRE LOZANO, Sandra. Why the healing in humid environment must be only limited to the treatment of the chronic wounds?: The clinical evidence to the service of the healing of tattoos. Gerokomos [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.4, pp.191-197. ISSN 1134-928X.

For years there was a new way of understanding the healing process based materials cure in humid environment (CAH). Its main purpose is to maintain the wound in a suitable situation for proper healing especially chronic wounds, but with thanks to its high efficiency, have been making a hole in the world of acute wounds. Based on these facts, we consider the applicability of the CAH not only in the field of chronic wounds, where today is the treatment of choice, but also in acute wounds where there is still a long way to go. The aim of this paper is to apply the best evidence to establish the treatment of choice for wounds made with the technique of tattooing. The case described suggests that the CAH is beneficial in the field of tatoos in increasing the speed of healing, quality of colour and design of the tattoo and decreased pain. Finally we would like to note that among the full range of hydrocolloid dressings can be a good solution, including those who are thin are the ones that allow us to control visual and healing wound edges and are suitable for superficial wounds exudate mild, such as tatoos.

Palabras clave : Tattoo; hydrocolloids; moist environment.
