Adhesive bandages are comparable to band-aids - they have a pad in the center that covers the wound, and an adhesive backing so that they cling to the area and keep it protected. Individually wrapped self-adhesive sterile dressings and bandages have the added benefit of sterility; they keep the wound more safe from bacteria. Sterile adhesive bandages come in assorted sizes; one option of these bandages would be the ReliaMed Sterile Gauze Border Dressing. This adhesive bandage collection includes both sterile and non-sterile adhesive wound dressings. 

Uses for Different Shaped Adhesive Bandages

Adhesive bandages come in many different sizes and shapes. This allows a user to find the right one that fits his wound or cut. If a bandage is not the right size or shape, it won’t fit the area properly, and therefore the wound may not heal as well. Here are some popular sizes of adhesive bandages. 

Extra Large Bandages

2 x 3 and 2 x 4 bandages are both considered extra large adhesive bandages. These bandages are ideal for use on knees and elbows - think knee scrapes and big elbow boo boos from monkey bars or scooters. Extra large adhesive bandages are a must-have for anyone with lively children around. They can also be used for road rash or rug burn.

Long Adhesive Bandages

Long adhesive bandages are most commonly 1 x 4 inches, but really, any bandage that is much longer than it is wide can be considered a long adhesive bandage. Some bandages, such as 4 x 8 adhesive bandages and 6 x 6 adhesive bandages are both long and wide. 

Round Bandages

Round bandages are usually small-sized. They can be used over an area that was inoculated, or over a small scrape, an insect bite, or a cut. They are good for small areas, such as a finger or palm, and are especially suited for children.

Small Adhesive Bandages

Small adhesive bandages can be used for bruises, cuts, or even paper cuts. 1 x 1 or 2 x 2 adhesive bandages are common choices for people looking for small adhesive bandages. 

How Long to Cover Your Cut For

A bandage for a minor cut can be removed after a day. This is because regular small wounds will close up within 24 hours. If a cut is still bleeding 10 minutes after the injury occurred, it is already time to seek medical intervention, since what’s needed in this case is not usually merely a band-aid. Keeping a cut covered with the same bandage for more than two days at a time is not recommended. 

Did You Know? In England, an adhesive bandage is oftentimes referred to as plaster. 

Help That Cut Heal

Did you get a small cut? Here are some easy tips you can try in order to help it heal. Firstly, be sure to wash the area with clean water. Then put on some antibiotic such as bacitracin. Next, use an adhesive bandage to cover the wound and keep it protected. Be sure to take off the band-aid after 24 hours. If you notice the cut is infected or the area is swollen, reach out to your doctor for medical assistance. 

Which Conditions Can Cause Cuts or Prolonged Bleeding?

We all know that sometimes, bruises can occur. There isn’t that much that can be done to prevent bruises from occurring; simply being active and productive will often cause inevitable nips and pricks. Whether it occurred while cooking in the kitchen, while playing outside or in the middle of cleaning your home, having such things happen is very normal. However, aside from those everyday cuts and scrapes, there are also certain conditions that can be the cause of such things. 

Von Willebrand Disease

A von Willebrand factor deficiency makes it that the person’s platelets don’t clot as well, and this causes bruises to bleed for longer. One of the symptoms of this condition is easy bruising, and another is prolonged bleeding after injury. 

Hemophilia A

This genetic bleeding disorder occurs when the individual has low levels of proteins related to clotting, and spontaneous bleeding, as well as easy bruising and nosebleeds, can occur as a result of this disorder. 

Hemophilia B

Hemophilia B is an inherited disease that was actually extremely prevalent among European royalty. Queen Victoria of England, of whom the Victorian era is named after, was a carrier, and passed it onto several of her children, who passed it onto their offspring. Also termed Christmas disease, Hemophilia B causes improper blood clotting, which results in prolonged bleeding, lots of bruising, internal bleeding which pools in the joints, and several other symptoms.
