This is a preliminary study to determine if patients and clinicians prefer using PolyMem formulating dressings on shave biopsy sites compared to the current standard of practice, which is antibiotic ointment covered with a band-aid type dressing.

Study summary:

Only individuals who require 2 shave biopsies on the same treatment day will be entered in the study. Each participant serves as their own control.
