When are plasters used?

Plasters are used to close wounds quickly. They are mainly used for minor injuries and are intended to help stop light bleeding. They are ideal for scratches, cuts, abrasions and minor burns. Plasters are not suitable for large wounds or internal injuries. For large, bleeding or very deep wounds, it is better to use bandages and compresses.

The different types of plasters

Plasters come in many different sizes, shapes and materials.

Here we explain which plasters you need and when, and how they differ in their properties:

Quick wound dressing

A quick wound dressing is a plaster that consists of a wound pad attached to an adhesive tape. The dressing is usually made of a sterile polyester fleece. Quick wound dressings are available cut to size or pre-cut in different shapes. These include plaster strips, fingertip plasters or large rectangular wound dressings. Quick wound dressings are mainly used for minor injuries such as scratches, cuts and abrasions that no longer require special treatment.

Hydrocolloid plasters

These plasters contain a hydrogel to keep the wound cool and moist. You can use them to soothe burns, blisters, calluses, herpes blisters or pimples. The gel absorbs the wound secretion and directs it to the outside. At the same time, a moist environment that promotes healing is maintained. The gel plaster also acts as a protective cushion over the wound.

Waterproof plasters

Waterproof plasters prevent the penetration of liquids from the outside due to their outer material. This not only protects the wound, but also allows the surrounding skin to come into contact with water. This means that you can shower without any problems despite the injury. Waterproof plasters usually stick to the skin for a shorter period than normal plasters because they are less stretchy and adapt to movement.

Blister plasters

Blister plasters are hydrocolloid plasters that are already cut to the appropriate shape for application to the foot or hand. The blister plaster is applied to the affected area and used for targeted pain relief and protection from external influences. The plasters are usually round. However, the hydrogel plasters are also available in an oval or rectangular shape for better hold on the heel. Blister plasters can be used to treat both open and closed blisters.

Plasters for sensitive skin

If you are looking for a plaster for sensitive skin, look for the words "Soft", "Skin" or "Sensitive" in the product description. This is a clear indication that the plasters are particularly skin-friendly. The prerequisite for a sensitive plaster is that it can be easily removed from the skin without leaving any adhesive residue and that no skin irritation occurs.

How do I apply a patch correctly?

1. Clean the skin around the wound if possible.

2. Disinfect the wound.

3. Depending on the type of injury, apply a wound and healing ointment. Read the package leaflet beforehand to find out whether the ointment is suitable for the injury in question.

4. If necessary, cut the quick bandage to the right length, preferably not too tightly

5. Place the plaster in the centre of the injury.

How do plasters help the wound to heal?

Plasters are designed to protect the affected area from external influences such as dirt, germs, or moisture. They lie like a second skin under the clothing and prevent the wound from drying on the clothing and tearing open again. In this way, infection can be prevented, and the wound can heal better. But that's not all: just a few minutes after you have sustained an injury, the body starts to produce wound secretions. This secretion is responsible for the care of the wound, but also contains waste products such as bacteria and dead cell parts. Without a plaster, the surface of the wound dries and crusts over. But there may still be moist wound secretion underneath, which slows down the wound healing process. By applying and regularly replacing the plaster, the top layer of secretion is removed each time and the wound can heal better.

The advantages of plasters at a glance:

  •     Quick closure of the wound
  •     Uncomplicated application
  •     Can be cut to specific lengths and shapes
  •     Reduce pain by cushioning the injury
  •     Promote wound healing
  •     Protect against external influences

When should I change the plaster?

When or how often a plaster should be changed depends entirely on the condition of the wound. If, for example, dirt or liquid gets on the plaster and penetrates it, we advise you to change the plaster, otherwise bacteria can get on the wound. This is especially important if the wound is not yet completely closed. Even if the wound is still oozing a lot of secretions, a new plaster should be applied regularly. However, you should not change a plaster too often either, because otherwise the wound healing process will be disturbed too frequently. In any case, the plaster should remain on the wound until it is completely closed.
