Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: TulleGras M.S. Device: TulleGras M.S.
Sterile dressing that consists of viscose tissue coated with mineral vaseline

Active Comparator: Urgotul Device: Urgotul
sterile, hydrocolloid dressing, that consist of a polyester fabric coated with hydrocolloid particles and vaseline

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain Intensity at Removal of the Primary Dressing, Evaluated by the Subject Just After Removal [ Time Frame: at the time of dressing removal on Day 2 (Visit 2) and Day 4 (Visit 3) ]
    Pain intensity experienced by subjects associated to removal of each study primary dressings during the care, assessed at of the Cross-over Period on a visual analogue scale (VAS). The VAS was provided as a 100 mm, non-graduated horizontal line, with extremities indicating " no pain " (0) and " extreme pain " (100). The subject responded by drawing a vertical line to assess the pain intensity he/she experienced at the time of removal of the primary wound dressing.
