Elastoplast Sensitive plasters are extra skin-friendly and have been tested on easily irritated skin.. They are suitable for covering all types of smaller wounds such as cuts, scratches and grazes.

Each plaster has a non-stick wound pad that provides the wound with cushioning and protection. The comfortable material is hypoallergenic and flexible. It has a skin-friendly adhesion that is secure so that the plaster stays in place but allows for painless removal.

Application:

Step 1

Clean the wound and gently wipe away any foreign objects such as dirt or grit.
Step 2
Dry the skin around the cut or graze very carefully.
Step 3
Apply plaster without stretching it, to avoid creases.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I change my plaster?

 

For hygienic reasons, it is recommended that you change Standard First Aid Dressings daily.

2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?
It is a commonly held myth about wound care that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! It is proven that covered wounds have a reduced risk of infection and heal more efficiently. Elastoplast plasters are the ultimate addition to your first aid supplies. They provide caring, antibacterial protection until the wounds are completely healed.

 

3. When should I consult a doctor or pharmacist?

 

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 the case of animal or human bites
  • If the wound is in the area of the face

 

Of course, whenever you have questions or are uncertain it is advisable to get in contact with a medical professional.

    4. What if my wound gets infected, swells, creates pus, or suppurates?

    You should contact a medical professional if you recognise any 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.
