Blister plasters are a hydrocolloid dressing pad with a semi-permeable, bacteria proof and waterproof backing. The plaster itself creates a gel (that can be seen as turning white in colour after a few days) whilst absorbing any liquid from the wound. The gel provides a moist environment which allows the wound to start healing from the inside without the need for a scab. This speeds up recovery time and reduces scarring.
This pack contains 5 plasters in total.
- Clean with soap and water first and then dry thoroughly to reduce the presence of oils and moisture to increase adhesion.
- Rub the plaster between your hands for a minute or two and this warmth with initiate the adhesive activation.
- Try and leave the plaster in place until it comes off of its own accord, ideally over 5 days.
- Don’t use on infected wounds or if you have diabetes or circulation problems.
