We recently had a customer tell us that our Cover-Roll Stretch Bandages were a life-saver in treating her dyshidrotic eczema. We love finding new uses for our products, so I thought I’d share this in case anyone is looking for an alternative to band aids in caring for dyshidrotic eczema.
When treating dyshidrotic eczema, doctors often recommend patients use an ointment or cream directly on the affected skin and then recommend covering the area with band aids or a similar product. The adhesive on band aids can actually irritate the affected skin, worsening the condition and causing pain. That’s why the Cover-Roll Stretch Bandage is a safe and more comfortable alternative.
Cover-Roll Stretch by BSN Medical is a non-woven adhesive bandage that is air permeable, skin friendly, and very flexible. Wrapped around a body part or used as a patch, it conforms to the skin and will stay in place even during active, sweaty sport activities. Most importantly, it does not pull at the skin when removed. For treating eczema, you should put a layer of gauze over the open skin or blisters and then use the Cover-Roll Stretch over to hold it securely in place.
Cover-Roll is hypo-allergenic and 100% latex free. It can easily be cut to size to fit any area.
