Water Resistant

Elastoplast Water Resistant plastic plasters are suitable to cover and protect all types of minor wounds.

Bacteria Shield

*Elastoplast plasters block 99% of dirt and bacteria.
The material is breathable and water-resistant. The non-stick wound pad protects and cushions the wound. The strong adhesion ensures that the plaster stays in place. The plasters are available: as strips in different sizes which seal all around the wound and as dressing length which can be cut to the ideal size

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.

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. 1. How often should I change my plaster?

    Usually, it is recommended to change Standard First Aid Dressings daily for 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. 2. Is it better to let small wounds dry in fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?

    It is one of the wound care myths that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered and exposed to the air helps them 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. 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 case of animal or human bites
    • if the wound is on the face
    • if there is insufficient tetanus vaccination
    • and of course always when you have any questions or are uncertain.

     

    Of course, whenever you have questions or are uncertain it is advisable to get in contact with a medical professional.

    • 4. What if my wound gets infected and forms pus?

      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 Plaster or Elastoplast Sensitive Kids Plaster products. These plasters are specially developed for sensitive skin and are 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 come off while washing. 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 Kids 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 they stick perfectly on fingers. Moreover, we offer a special hand set with three different plaster shapes to fit fingertips and knuckles.
