    How to use

    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 10 cm 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 in 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?
    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 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.

    Not the best

    have tried using these on various occasions but when you try to cut with scissors the elastic gets squashed together.

    Good but difficult to cut

    Good plaster but difficult to cut sometimes due to the nature of the material. But I like how you can cut to desired shape as usually I find the small plaster finish first and I’m lef with big ones only

    Elastoplast Fabric Cut to Size Plasters

    The adhesive is very strong - Make sure you place the plaster in the right place as it will be very hard to remove to reposition. The material is stronger than that used in other plasters. It is supposed to be water-repellent, but water can enter the woundpad and the adhesive fails when the plaster gets wet when washing up - A plaster came off after washing up once. Putting cloths on and taking them off can start to rub the edges of a plaster away from contact with the skin. Putting a plaster over a joint - such as a wrist - when the skin is stretched, with the wrist bent downwards, can lead to part of the adhesive strip raising up off the skin, such that the unattached length equals the length of the woundpad, when the wrist is raised upwards.

    I bought this as needed to custom fit plasters around my finger, this does not stick no matter where or how fitted it. Would not use again.
