How to use

Cleaning of a wound or scrape under water- Elastoplast

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 pressure with a gauze pad or Non-Stick Dressing, keep pressure on the wound and seek medical advice.

Drying of the skin around the cut - Elastoplast
Next, it’s important to protect the wound from external influences like dirt and bacteria to enable undisturbed healing. Cover your wound with the Elastoplast plaster or 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.
Application of plaster on wound - Elastoplast
Help your wound heal up to 2x faster 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 or dressing.

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. 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 the 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 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 or Sensitive Kids 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 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 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.

 

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

What is the material?

It says breathable material however doesn’t state what materials are used or what is used to create the sticky residue. I used one just yesterday and actually had to remove it shortly after as instead of helping it made the whole area itchy and it’s still itchy/painful today. Would be good if the materials used were able to be seen in case people are allergic or find out they are allergic and can therefore avoid said materials via elimination.

Difficult to unwrap

I like them better than Bandaides Because they stick longer/better, but I have so much trouble getting them out of the wrapper.

Amazing!

Best plasters I have ever used. Do not come off when sweating. Really lets the skin under the glue breathe. 10/10 would recommend to anyone

Useless! Bring back the original!

Elastoplast was the only brand I used. Strong, reliable and stuck well. These ones of today are useless! They don’t stay on and have none of the sticking power that they use to have in “the good old days!” Very, very disappointed.

ACCESS TO USEABILITY IS ATROCIOUS!

I have just cut the tip of my first L H finger whilst using a bench saw. First thing was off to the first aid cabinet to get something to clean the wound and secondly, stem the bleeding the cut was not that bad but it did cut 1/4 way into the fingernail. Now I am not used to band aid application but I have used them in the past tear the paper cover - yes well this Fabric extra flexible does not really allow that. You see, being somewhat of a newbie trying to get the thing out saw me tear and twist the sticky bits together rendering the darn thing useless. Attempt No.2 - with some assistance ( i was told to look for the end, the plastic parts and allows one to peel the plastic off, then there's the fold back to get to the actual dressing. Notwithstanding that blood was now all over the place and I have to clean it up, I have had a little time to reflect on the matter and I wonder- why has applying a band aid become so complicated that there needs to be some sort of direction on use & ...
