Medical adhesive plasters, commonly known as band-aids, are small adhesive strips used to cover small cuts, wounds, or blisters. They are made of a fabric or plastic strip with an adhesive backing and a gauze or non-stick pad in the center to cover the wound. Medical adhesive plasters come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials to suit different needs. Some medical adhesive plasters are waterproof, making them ideal for use while showering or swimming. Others have antibiotic ointment applied to the pad to help prevent infection. Some are designed for specific body parts, such as fingers or elbows, while others are more versatile and can be used on any part of the body.
Medical adhesive plasters are a common first aid item found in homes, schools, and workplaces. They are easy to use and provide quick protection for minor injuries.
