Moist woundhealing: optimum condition for healing
“Wounds heal best in a humid environment. This is a clinically proven learning that the plaster is based upon. In a protected environment the blister will heal off best and all by itself. With a blister, breaking its protective layer of skin allows bacteria to enter the wound, which is medically considered an open wound. Nevertheless, if this does happen, you should disinfect the punctured blister (for example with an antiseptic spray) and cover it with a blister plaster. It will protect the affected area from further pressure, friction and other harmful external influences.”

for the wound to heal"
“Thanks to our hydrocolloid technology the Elastoplast SOS Blister Plasters create the optimum environment for the wound to heal. The hydrocolloid material of the plaster will at the same time take up superfluous liquid from the wound and create a protective gel cushion over it which will keep its environment humid and thus let the wound heal quickly.“
