• Non-Stick pads ARE NOT waterproof.
• No adhesive on non-stick pads - use tape (eg. paper) to hold in position.
• Top layer is pictured.
• Clean wound (preferably with an antiseptic solution) before application of a non-stick pad.
• Apply an antiseptic cream to a clean and dry wound (preferably with a clean cotton bud).
• Keep applied non-stick pads clean and dry.
• Change non-stick pads at least every 24 hours or when soiled or wet.
My Johnson and Johnson, Band-Aid, Non-Stick Pads (8) arrived on time and are in good condition. Thank you Amazon (Au) for dispatching my order on the same day that it was placed and Amazon Logistics for their usual fast, safe and personal delivery.
Every First Aid, Non-Stick Pad (pad) has 3 distinctive layers (see photos). The top layer helps to protect the wound from dirt and germs. It also helps to contain any wound discharge and protect clothing from soiling. The middle layer is made from a cotton wool type material. The cotton wool material helps to absorb any wound discharge and provides some protective cushioning to the wound area. The bottom layer (non-stick) provides hassle free Pad removal.
I use these pads to cover abrasions (grazes), cuts, minor burns and minor surgeries (skin cancer). The pads cover, protect and absorb any discharge from wounds that are to large to be covered by standard medical adhesive strips (Band-Aids). The pads require adhesive tape (eg. paper tape) to hold them in position over the wound area. The pads easily peel away from the wound without significant wound disturbance. This advances the healing process. The pads help to promote rapid healing.
The 2 smaller sized pads (3.8cm × 5cm) are of limited value as they offer similar coverage to that of an extra large (fabric) adhesive strips (Band-Aid). Extra Large adhesive strips are more convenient (no adhesive tape required and ready to place) and cheaper. I would have preferred an extra medium pad (5cm × 7.5cm) instead of the 2 smaller pads.
Good pads that allow a dressing to be readily assembled to cover wounds of various sizes.
