Bandages FAQs

What's the Difference Between Wound Dressing and Bandages?

Dressings: A dressing is applied to a wound to facilitate healing and prevent further damage. A dressing is made to be in direct contact with the wound.
Bandage: A bandage is categorized as anything used to keep a dressing in place. While individual health agencies consider them as the same thing and the terms are used interchangeably by some people; there is a difference.
A bandage can be used as part of a dressing, but it can also be used with a splint, or it can be used on its own to provide support to the body. Bandages can be used to restrict the flow of blood. During heavy bleeding or following a poisonous bite this is important. Bandages are available in a wide range of types, from generic cloth strips, to specialized shaped bandages designed for a specific limb or part of the body.

How often to change Bandage?

Bandages should be changed daily or sooner – check if it has become dry or wet – so the wound can be kept clean and dry.

How to remove Bandage Adhesive?

Removing Bandage Adhesive from skin:
Use oil to weaken the adhesive:
Take a cotton ball and soak it in baby oil. If you dont have baby oil olive oil, petroleum oil, or baby shampoo will work. Gently rub it over the bandage till it fall off. Applying a gentle lotion or petroleum jelly will also work.
Freeze the adhesive:
Take some ice cubes and wrap it in towel. Gently rub it on bandage. Ice works by making the adhesive brittle, which in turn, makes it easier to pull off.
You can also use Adhesive Remover.
