Adhesive Bandages

Adhesive bandages are one of the greatest revolutions of first aid in history. They are small in size and are the go to option for sealing small lacerations and wounds. The adhesive of these bandages sticks perfectly to the skin. It is hypoallergenic and hence does not cause any rashes or irritation. The bandages are highly absorbent and help in absorbing the exudate from the wound. They are made of breathable material that allows oxygen to pass through to the wound. They are also called child-friendly bandages as they also come in a kids option with colorful patterns so that the wound or the bandaging does not intimidate children. These adhesive bandages are a common component of all first aid kits. At Shop Wound Care, we have a wide range of adhesive bandages from some of the best brands such as Medline, Johnson and Johnson, Acelity etc.
