Plasters are widely used not only for clinical wound treatment but also in everyday life. The following is an introduction to the precautions for the role of plasters.

Here is the content list:

l Effects

l Precautions


Pain relief effect

When using the clear waterproof plaster to treat wounds, chitosan can have an emollient effect on the wound and will have some cooling sensation, and, after medical research, chitosan also has the effect of absorbing "pain-causing factors" in the wound, thus, chitosan can play a wound pain relief function.

Hemostatic effect

Due to the positive and negative charges attracted by chitosan and cells, the plaster can quickly cause the aggregation of red blood cells, thus achieving the effect of hemostasis.

Anti-bacterial effect

The waterproof plaster has a double antibacterial effect, with an antibacterial rate of >99.9% for Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans and >93% for Escherichia coli.

Scar prevention effect

The detectable plaster can permanently inhibit bacteria, reduce the number of plaster changes, and inhibit the proliferation of abnormal fibroblasts, thus inhibiting the formation of scars.

Healing effect

The clear waterproof plaster creates and maintains the ideal wet environment needed by the wound, activates growth factors, promotes the growth and regeneration of granulation tissue cells, and thus promotes wound healing. The waterproof wound dressing provides the necessary nutrients and adequate blood circulation to speed up the wound healing time.


Hydrocolloid plaster is not recommended for wounds with severe infection, exposed bone tendons, and high exudate.

Hydrocolloid plasters form a gel when in contact with wound exudate and when the plaster is opened the wound is seen to resemble a septic substance with a peculiar odor, sometimes with a change in color and swelling in appearance, which is a combination of the substance and odor of the fabric plaster itself and the decomposition of proteins in the exudate.

Alginate plasters are available for superficial to full-length wounds, wounds with medium to large amounts of exudate, cavities and sinus tracts, infected and bleeding wounds, but are not recommended for dry wounds and wounds with crusts.

For wounds with excessive granulation tissue growth and a large amount of exudate, foam plasters can be used to keep the area moist and clean by using its strong exudate absorption ability, together with elastic bandages to inhibit granulation tissue proliferation.

Keep the wound moist and the surrounding skin dry to avoid affecting the repair of the wound by changing the plaster too frequently. Different types of plasters should also be selected according to the grading of the pressure sore, the size of the wound, the presence or absence of infection, the amount of secretion, the degree of pain, the condition of the surrounding skin, and the patient's body position.
