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 more gauze pads, 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 sterile wound 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 safely, quickly 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, dressing or compress.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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. 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. 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
    • Of course, whenever you have questions or are uncertain it is advisable to get in contact with a medical professional.
  4. 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. 5. Which plaster should I use for my sensitive skin?

    If you have very sensitive skin we recommend using the Elastoplast Sensitive or Elastoplast Sensitive Kids products. These plasters are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin friendly and hypoallergenic.

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

Mum if a sensitive girl

Still had a Reaction

🤕 can’t use,

The Elastoplast Team
Hi Mum if a sensitive girl, we are so sorry to hear that a reaction has still occurred with this product. This product includes an acrylic adhesive which is most likely what the sensitivity/allergy is most likely regarding. If you would like us to assist you further in trying to find a suitable product please do not hesitate to contact us by calling on 1 800 103 023 or sending us an email at support.anz@elastoplast.com.au Thanks, The Elastoplast Team

Great product

Terrific product all-round. Quality production is obvious. The only crinkle for my situation is that my wife needs the 72mm x 50mm item in particular but in a 40-pack we only get 2 of these, thus making it very expensive (even though overall the box of 40 is good value). How can we obtain a larger number of the 72mm x 50mm plasters spcifically?

The Elastoplast Team
Hi Tony. Thank you so much for your positive feedback in regards to our Elastoplast Sensitive Plasters, we have forwarded your comments to the Marketing Team. Unfortunately, the 72mm x 50mm sensitive plasters are not available in a packet alone so we would recommend 2 alternatives- Elastoplast Silicone Soft XL OR Elastoplast Sensitive Dressing Lengths. If you would like to discuss this further, you can email us at support.anz@elastoplast.com.au We thank you for your comments. The Elastoplast Team

Superglue sticky!

I can’t understand why these are sold as extra skin friendly, the adhesive on them is so strong, taking the strip off, is incredibly hard and painful. On my elderly Mother, it actually tore her skin. Whilst I don’t get dermatitis from these, the skin is still irritated and I am left with glue residue on my fingers.

Not for me

I get the same allergic reaction as the standard type. VERY itchy, red inflamed skin that start to spread way beyond the wound. Settles down 20 mins after removal!

Don't really seem skin friendly or "sensitive".

After having a wound on some very sensitive skin- my nipple. I tried using these for a few days as the GP said I had to have it covered while the outside skin healed. First day, used three of the strips, changing as directed - was okay, only had a little discomfort. Second day, a lot more discomfort and visibly some skin taken off. Third day, replacing them was agony, I only did it once. Took me a solid 10 minutes to pull the strip off as it was so adhered to my skin. Left awful, peeled and irritated skin behind.
