Plasters are not a panacea

Plasters are not a panacea and are not suitable for all wounds. In general, hydrocolloid plasters are mainly used for some small and shallow wounds, especially for cutting wounds with neat and clean incisions, a little bleeding, and no need for stitches, such as knife cuts, lacerations, glass scratches, etc.

Correct practice: to strictly grasp the indications. For larger, deeper, and foreign body wounds, plasters should not be used, and such cases should be promptly seen by a hospital. For wounds that have been contaminated or infected, such as heavier skin abrasions and burns, plasters should not be used. For folliculitis, boils, purulent infected wounds, and various skin diseases, fabric plasters are even more inappropriate. For wounds caused by curved animals such as dog bites, cat scratches, snake bites, poisonous insect stings, or bites, do not use plasters to avoid the accumulation or spread of toxic juices and germs in the wound. The wound should be rinsed repeatedly with water, cold tea water, mineral water, saline, 2% soapy water, etc. for more than 15 minutes in the first instance.

Plasters can not be applied casually

When using plasters, it is always convenient to put them on casually, which is not correct.

Correct practice: before using plasters, first of all, check whether there is dirt in the wound, such as unclean things, must use sterilized saline to clean the wound first, and then put on the plaster. If the wound is pierced by nails and other objects and deep, you should immediately go to the hospital and need to inject tetanus antitoxin. Secondly, after opening the plaster, avoid contaminating the medication surface. When applying the patch, the medicated surface must be aligned with the wound, and slight pressure should be applied on both sides of the wound after the patch is applied.

Plasters can be applied for a long time

The wound on the detectable plaster is not the same as "everything is fine", also can not belong paste, ignored.

The correct approach: one is to pay attention to the changes in the wound. If the use of plaster 24 hours later, the wound is felt similar to the pulse beat "pulsating pain", or there is a discharge overflow, to promptly open to observe the wound around the redness, swelling, and pain. If there is, it means that the wound has been infected, should immediately ask the doctor to deal with it. Secondly, we should pay attention to the protection of the wound. After using the plaster, do not often pinch the wound with your hands, the wound local activities as little as possible, to prevent a collision, to avoid wound cracking. Third, the use of plasters should not be too long, otherwise, it will breed bacteria, should be changed once a day.

Waterproof plasters are not afraid of water

It is not the use of clear waterproof plasters that can be in contact with water for a long time. If the plaster does not stick tightly to the skin around the wound, especially in special areas such as fingertips, knees, and elbows, the waterproof will not become "waterproof".

Correct practice: When using waterproof plasters, try to minimize contact with water, pay attention to observing and protecting the wound, and replace water-soaked waterproof wound dressings promptly.
