Cotton Wool for Medical Use

“Cotton wool” is a term used to refer to cotton in its softest and fluffiest form – think cotton balls. Due to its absorbency, it is most often used for cleaning the skin, bathing wounds, or applying liquids and creams. Common applications of cotton wool in medicine include:
  • Cotton wool balls
  • Cotton roll
  • Q-tips
  • Cotton pads
  • Gauze
  • Dressings and bandages
Cotton has been used in medicine since the Middle Ages. Writers of that time described the use of raw, untreated cotton fibers in several medical applications, including forming pads over dressed wounds, protecting burns and scalds, and serving as an early “drainage tube” by keeping the edges of wounds open. At the time, however, cotton was not purified and thus was risky in such applications – a far cry from the easily sterilized cotton products that hospitals use today. By the mid-nineteenth century, physicians were starting to use “carded cotton” – cotton carded into narrow fleeces – in the treatment of burns and other skin conditions. This type of cotton was cleaned and washed prior to use, so it was safer than its raw, untreated predecessor.
