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.

Bring back the old fabric bandaids

Hi LOVED the old, "Elastoplast Fabric Extra Flexible Breathable" bandaids with the square edges. No issues at all with these ones - they stuck really well and when they got wet, they could be removed without leaving any sticky stuff on the skin. They were comfortable and definitely my favourite bandaids. I ran out of them and went onto the new rounded edge ones - "Flexible Fabric Breathable Water Repellent". I now no longer have a choice re: water repellent fabric bandaids (which I don't want) and they don't repel water either. But what does happen is that when the bandaid gets wet and falls off, it leaves a very sticky mess on my skin. Please please please bring back the old fabric bandaids. If it ain't broke .... don't fix it.

Bring back the original quality!

These were the ONLY product of its type that I would use. After recently replenishing my stocks, I found a small change to rounded corners and thought not much of it. After requiring to use some today, I am rather disappointed to find that the product that I had come to rely upon, has taken a dive quality wise. Whatever Elastoplast have done with their new product has resulted in an inferior product compared to what they once were. They just do not stick properly anymore and basically fell off after only a few hours, unlike the previous quality "square ended" types that could be relied upon to stick for days, even after multiple showers or repeated hand washing. After finding an "original" plaster, it is also obvious the actual fabric has been cheapened too, being nowhere near as robust. In an effort to perhaps keep costs down, Elastoplast now seem second best. I urge Elastoplast to return to their previous quality product - I really don't care if a box is going to be a bit dearer, but... ShowMore

Quality?

You have changed the strength of the sticky. It hardly stays on. Maybe you’ve cut costs but the product is not as good as it was

Not fit for purpose!

These are not fit for purpose. they literally wash off in water. I’m a tradie and often need to cover a cut/injury and keep it covered so it can heal quickly and correctly. Once soon a time elastoplas was the only company that made a fabric strip that would stay on and allow you to keep working… Definitely not the case these days! I’m needing to use 3 or 4 strips per day as they keep washing off! Not good enough and gets super expensive.

Not as good as previous square-end strips

I'm very disappointed in these 'round-end' strips. They don't stay on nearly as well as the 'straight-end' ones.
