How to Use
1. How often should I change the bandage?For wound treatment the bandage is recommended for fixation of a wound pad or dressing. Usually, it is recommended to change the wound dressing daily due to hygiene reasons.
2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a bandage?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. Hansaplast products provide protection until the wound is 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 case of animal or human bites
- if the wound is in the area of the face
- if there is insufficient tetanus vaccination
- and of course always when you have questions or are uncertain.
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. Why do I have to place an extra pad or dressing under the bandageThe cohesive bandage does not contain a wound pad which is necessary to absorb blood and wound exudate and to ensure that the wound area is cushioned and hygienically protected. Thus, a wound should first be covered with a wound pad or dressing which then can be fixed with the cohesive bandage.
6. What is HACCP?HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a preventive management system to address food safety by analysing and controlling biological, chemical, and physical hazards in food production process. Hansaplast Finger Cohesive is HACCP suitable, and therefore can be used in the kitchen to prevent and protect small wounds on fingers.
