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.
