Elastoplast Finger Strips are suitable for covering all types of small wounds on fingers. These extra flexible fabric finger bandages are extra long for a better hold.
Elastoplast fabric plasters have a backing that is durable, breathable and extra malleable. They create a strong seal all around the wound, keeping dirt and germs out. Every Elastoplast fabric plaster has a non-stick wound pad that provides superior cushioning and absorption. The strong adhesion ensures that the plaster stays in place.
Cleanse the wound and gently wipe away any foreign objects such as dirt or grit. We recommend the Elastoplast Wound Spray for fast and pain free wound cleansing. Dry the area around the wound gently.
Apply plaster without stretching it, to avoid creases.
For up to two times faster healing, apply Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment and cover again with a plaster until the wound has healed.
Always read the label. Follow directions for use. If symptoms persist talk to your healthcare professional. This medicine may not be right for you. Read the warnings before purchase. The pharmacist reserves the right to not supply contrary to our professional and ethical obligation.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How often should I change my plaster?
For hygienic reasons, it is recommended that you change Standard First Aid Dressings daily.
2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?
It is a commonly held myth about wound care that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! It is proven that covered wounds have a reduced risk of infection and heal more efficiently. Elastoplast plasters are the ultimate addition to your first aid supplies. They provide caring, antibacterial protection until the wounds are 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.
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, swells, creates pus, or suppurates?
You should contact a medical professional if you recognise any 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 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 Strips as well as the Heavy Duty Waterproof Fabric range are waterproof and will not go off while washing or showering. All Elastoplast Plastic plasters as well as the Junior plasters are water resistant.
7. What is a fabric plaster?
A fabric plaster is a plaster that is constructed mostly with soft fabrics, rather than a plastic backing. Elastoplast fabric plasters are extra robust due to a heavy weave and flexibility that lets them conform to the shape of your body. A fabric plaster will generally stick for longer than a plastic plaster, while providing the same sealed off protection. For cuts and grazes on knees and elbows, try Elastoplast Fabric Extra Flexible Plasters, specially designed to bend and flex to any corner or crevice.
