HOW TO REMOVE YOUR BANDAGE

The best way to remove the bandage is to find an edge and pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. Pulling upward on the bandage can be painful.
Rarely, some people will stick to the it better than others and it can be difficult to remove. In this case try removing the bandage in warm shower, the warmth will loosen the adhesive and make if easier to remove. If that doesn’t work then you can use a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil and apply it to the edge of the bandage, the oil will weaken the adhesive.
This bandage locks in the body’s natural moisture and healing enzymes. After skin has been injured, healing elements are produced to help break down dead tissue and rebuild new tissue. These healing elements dry up and evaporate which reduces their effectiveness. When this happens, longer healing times are required and scabbing and scarring occur. It locks in these healing elements, the bandage is breathable. In addition, it protects against dirt and germs and other irritations that might further interfere with the healing process.
