Immediate treatment involves icing the injured area to reduce pain and decrease swelling. Any accumulation of fluid in the area of injury will require aspiration by a qualified medical practitioner. Before the CauliCure appliance can be used effectivity, the ear must be clear of any fluid accumulation to avoid pain, pressure and permanent cartilage damage.
The CauliCure compression appliance and the injured area must be cleaned with alcohol prior to positioning of the compression discs. Choose the size which fits best for the anatomy of the ear tissue being treated. Place the first compression disc on the posterior or back of the ear, and the second on the anterior or front of the ear.
Keep the appliance and area of injury clean at all times. If you touch the discs or ear tissue, clean immediately and re-apply.
The appliance must be worn at all times, and can take from 3 to 7 days for proper adherence of the skin to fibrocartilage. If a build up of fluid is present, it must be aspirated prior to the continued use of the CauliCure system.
During sport or sleep, it's a requirement to use the provided headband to hold the compression discs in place. Failure to do so will result in a poor outcome and the potential for additional hematoma symptoms. Headband must be clean before use.
If there is any sign of infection, seek medical attention immediately.
