Made for life’s little injuries, these all-purpose bandages are designed to repel water and dirt from your wound. Because a simple wound should never slow you down!

  • The material is breathable and water-resistant. 
  • The non-stick woundpad protects and cushions the wound. 
  • The strong adhesion ensures that the bandage stays in place.
  • Latex free

The Elastoplast Plastic bandages are available as strips in different sizes and shapes, which seal all around the wound.


Cleanse
Cleansing the wound from dirt and bacteria is an essential first step to treat wounds. Cleanse the wound with a suitable solution, then gently pat dry the area around the wound.

Important: A minor wound will soon stop bleeding. If it continues, apply more gauze pads, keep pressure on the wound and seek medical advice.
Protect
Next, it’s important to protect the wound from external influences like dirt and bacteria to enable undisturbed healing. Cover your wound with the Elastoplast bandage that best suits your needs. Change the bandage daily unless you’ve been recommended to do otherwise by your doctor. 
Heal
Help your wound to heal quickly and with a lower risk of scarring. Apply Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment regularly until your wound has healed completely. Carefully apply a thin film one to two times per day. Make sure the opening of the tube does not get in contact with your wound. Repeat regularly until the healing is completed. The Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment can be used on open minor superficial wounds and at any stage of the healing process. If necessary, cover the wound with a bandage, dressing or compress.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I change my bandage?
Usually, it is recommended to change Standard First Aid Dressings daily due to hygienic reasons. 
2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a bandage?

It is one of the wound care myths that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered and let air to them helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! Research shows that covered wounds heal more efficiently and have a reduced risk of infection. Elastoplast products provide protection until the wound is completely healed.

3. When should I consult a doctor?

We recommend contacting a medical professional under the following circumstances:

  • if the wound is deep and causing major bleeding
  • if the wound shows signs of infection such as redness, warmth, pain and swelling
  • if there are embedded foreign objects in it
  • in case of animal or human bites
  • if the wound is in the area of the face
  • if there is insufficient tetanus vaccination

and of course always when you have questions or are uncertain.

4. What if my wound gets infected and suppurates?
You should contact a medical professional if you recognize signs of infection. This is not only the occurrence of pus but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In case of infection the wound will need medical care and special medical treatment.
5. Which bandage should I use for my sensitive skin?
If you have very sensitive skin we recommend using the Elastoplast Sensitive or Elastoplast Sensitive Kids products. These bandages are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin friendly and hypoallergenic.
6. Which Elastoplast bandages are waterproof and water resistant?
The Elastoplast Aqua Protect bandages are waterproof and will not go off while washing or showering. The Elastoplast Fabric range is water repellent. The material keeps water on the surface where it beads off. All Elastoplast Plastic bandages are water resistant.
