Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Make A Dressing Waterproof?

Before applying a bandage, ensure the wound is well moistened with antibiotic ointment or petroleum jelly. Infections are more likely to spread when the bandage is damp because water may seep through and even beneath it.

How Can You Protect A Dressing In The Shower?

Always wear a rubber glove or, at the very least, a large plastic bag in the shower to prevent water from getting into your sutures. After a shower in which you remain standing in the tub, gently massage the region around your sutures with a clean, dry towel to speed up the healing process.

Why Are Waterproof Dressings Blue?

It would help if you covered any cut with a waterproof plaster. If it were to fall off, it would be simpler to locate if it were a “visible” colour (often blue).

Why Should You Cover Wounds With A Dressing?

Dressings have a few uses, including stopping drainage from an incision and keeping sutures from becoming twisted.
