Bionect (hyaluronic acid sodium salt) cream and gel is a biological polysaccharide indicated for the dressing and management of partial to full thickness dermal ulcers (pressure sores, venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers), wounds including cuts, abrasions, donor sites, and is intended to cover a wound or burn on a patient's skin, and protect against abrasion, friction, and dryness. Side effects of Bionect include sensitization to the drug. A side effect of Bionect oral gel is a burning sensation in your mouth. Serious side effects of Bionect include allergic reactions such as skin irritation, rash, hives, itching, swelling (especially of the face, tongue or throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing, or tightness of the chest.

Bionect is available as a cream or gel in strength of 0.2% hyaluronic acid sodium salt. Bionect should be applied in a thin layer without extensive rubbing onto the wound surface, two or three times per day. Cover the lesion area with a sterile gauze pad and, if necessary, with an elastic or compressive bandage. If condition worsens, consult your physician immediately. Keep this product out of the reach of children. Each tube of Bionect should be used by one patient only in order to reduce the risk of cross infection.
