BacteriaShield
  • The material stretches with the skin’s movements.
  • The non-stick woundpad protects and cushions the wound.
  • The strong adhesion ensures that the plaster stays in place.

Latex Free

Cleansing the wound from dirt and bacteria is an essential first step to enable optimal healing. To prevent wound infections, spray the Elastoplast Wound Spray from a distance of approximately 10cm onto the entire wound area. Repeat if necessary, then gently dry the wound and surrounding skin area.  

Important: A minor wound will soon stop bleeding. If it continues, apply more gauze pads, keep pressure on the wound and seek medical advice.
Next, it’s important to protect the wound from external influences like dirt and bacteria to enable undisturbed healing. Cover your wound with a sterile wound dressing that best suits your needs. Observe your wound and change the plaster or dressing regularly unless you’ve been recommended to do otherwise by your doctor. You might find this wound dressing know-how article useful.
Help your wound heal safely, 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 plaster, dressing or compress.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I change my plaster?
Usually, it is recommended to change standard first aid dressings daily due to hygienic reasons. Some advanced plasters such as the Fast Healing Plaster that provide moist wound healing conditions are recommended to be left in place for up to two days or more in order not to interrupt the healing process.
2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?
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, however 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?
Next, it’s important to protect the wound from external influences like dirt and bacteria to enable undisturbed healing. Cover your wound with a sterile wound dressing that best suits your needs. Observe your wound and change the plaster or dressing regularly unless you’ve been recommended to do otherwise by your doctor. You might find this wound dressing know-how article useful.
4. What if my wound gets infected and suppurates?
You should contact a medical professional if you recognise 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 plaster 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 plasters are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin-friendly and hypoallergenic.
6. Which Elastoplast plasters are waterproof and water-resistant?
The Elastoplast Aqua Protect and Aqua Protect XL/XXL strips as well as the Fast Healing Plasters 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 Water Resistant plasters as well as the Junior plasters are water-resistant.
7. Which plasters do you recommend for wounds on fingers?
For injuries and wounds on hands and fingers we recommend our special Elastoplast Finger Strips. These plasters are extra long so that they stick perfectly on fingers.

Good finger plasters

They were very good usually when I use plasters when they get wet they come off, these plasters were still in place and stayed sticky for a long time they were one off the best I've used
Michele

Great size but not waterproof

Having cut my finger quite badly on a dog lead I thought this would be a good test for the plasters. They wrap around twice which is great because it helps it stay on well. It didn't even fall off during another dog walk, when the lead was rubbing on the same place as the cut the previous day. BUT, I had to put on a new plaster each day as they fell off during a shower/washing my hair, which was surprising and disappointing. Overall I'd say they're good, because of the size, but not good for those that have to wash their hands frequently.

Soft plasters

These are soft plasters and very protective. They are great to have in the house as I have 2 children who was outdoor kids who love football - say no more. They are easy to use and cbild friendly.

Good quality product and easy to use

I have only used this product once but I found it easy to apply and was easy to use. It felt comfortable and did the job of protecting the cut. I would buy this product again and use it as an alternative to what I usually purchase

Lasts long

I am into climbing and I have tried this on my fingers when I get cuts during my climbing. They are fairly heavy duty and does not come off during my climbing.
