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.
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. 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
  • 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 recognize 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 products. These plasters are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin friendly and hypoallergenic.
6. Which Elastoplast plaster are waterproof and water resistant?
The Elastoplast Aqua Protect Strips are waterproof and will not come off while washing or showering. All Elastoplast Plastic plaster as well as the Junior plaster 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 Fabric Finger Strips. These plasters are extra long so that they stick perfectly on fingers. Moreover we offer a special handset with three different plaster shapes to fit fingertips and knuckles.

8. What is a waterproof plaster?

A waterproof plaster is a wound dressing that keeps wounds dry even when submerged underwater. Suitable for minor to moderate severity wounds such as cuts, grazes and minor incisions, waterproof plasters will have a soft woundpad surrounded by a sticky, waterproof material that seals off completely.

Wearing a waterproof plaster keeps wounds clean by staving off waterborne contaminants.

Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.
