A small band-aid is regarded by many people as a “golden oil”, but do you know? Band-Aids cannot be used indiscriminately either. A girl was amputated if she did not use Band-Aids properly.

A 4-year-old girl was admitted to a hospital in Suzhou. The middle finger of the girl’s left hand was blackened and had necrosis for several days. Amputation was needed to prevent the disease from deteriorating further. Surprisingly, the necrosis of the girl’s finger was caused only by a small band-aid after the injury. However, due to improper handling afterwards, the blood circulation of the finger was impeded and eventually necrosis occurred.

How can I use the Band-Aid correctly? Which wounds can’t be treated with band-aids? Don’t worry, health king told you!

Have you been successful in using the Band-Aid?

Myth 1: Band-aid is a panacea

Band-aid is mainly used for some small and shallow wounds, especially for cuts that are neat, clean, bleeding little and do not need stitching, such as knife cuts, cuts, glass cuts, etc.

Correct approach:

For large, deep and foreign body wounds, band-aid should not be used. In this case, you should go to the hospital in time.

Band-Aid is not suitable for contaminated or infected wounds, such as severe skin abrasions, burns, etc.

As for folliculitis, furuncle, suppurative infection wounds and various skin diseases, band-aid is not suitable.

Myth 2: Band-aid can be pasted casually.

When we use band-aid stickers, we always try to make things convenient and stick things casually, which is incorrect.

Correct approach:

Before using Band-Aid, first check whether there is dirt left in the wound. If there is dirty matter, clean the wound with sterilized normal saline before applying Band-Aid.

If the wound is punctured by iron nails and other materials and is relatively deep, it should be treated in hospital immediately and tetanus antitoxin should be injected.

Secondly, after the band-aid is opened, contamination of the drug surface should be avoided.

During application, the medicine surface must be aligned with the wound, and slightly press on both sides of the wound after application.

Myth 3: Band-Aid Can Be Lasted

Sticking band-aid to a wound does not mean “everything is fine”, nor can it be stuck for a long time and ignored.

Correct approach:

If there is “pulsating pain” similar to pulse beating or secretion overflow at the wound after 24 hours of application of band-aid patch, open it in time to observe whether there is red swelling and hot pain around the wound. If yes, the wound has been infected and should be treated by a doctor immediately.

After using Band-Aid, do not pinch the wound with your hand frequently. The wound should move as little as possible to prevent collision and prevent the wound from splitting.

Band-Aids should not be used for too long. They should be changed every day.

Myth 4: waterproof band-aid is not afraid of water.

The waterproof band-aid does not allow long-term contact with water.

If the band-aid is not tightly adhered to the skin around the wound, especially in special parts, such as fingertips, knees and elbows, the waterproofing will also become less “waterproof”.

Everyone knows the mistake of using Band-Aid, but do you really know how to use Band-Aid? The dressing method of the band-aid is also asked by the university. It is not simply to tear it apart and stick it around the wound.

This kind of sticking method is firmer.

You have to do this first:

Prepare the Band-Aid

Cut the band-aid along the dotted line in the figure.

It’s okay to be like this

First, move the top left to the right
