Compeed 5 Mixed Size Blister Plasters
About this deal
Cold blisters: These are caused by frostbite, and as for heat blisters, they are a defense mechanism deployed to protect lower levels of skin from temperature-related damage. Friction blisters: A very common, yet often very debilitating skin injury. Everything you need to know and how we can help.
If your blister doesn't have a roof, you will likely have noticed a red, weeping sore beneath the skin. These can be painful and are at risk of infection, so it's important to apply a protective dressing. Once you have cleaned your wound and the surrounding area, you can apply a blister plaster to this type of wound to act as an artificial blister roof and encourage your skin to heal in a protected environment.Cold sores: the Compeed ® discreet patch treats cold sores throughout all stages of development to facilitate healing and resolution.
Compeed ® plasters have bevelled edges to maximise adhesion to the skin. They act like a second skin and are designed to remain in place for several days *. Conversely, if your deroofed blister is dry and on its way to healing already, if it's dry or got a scab over it, a hydrocolloid should not be used. The wound must be somewhat weepy for a hydrocolloid dressing to be an option. If it's dry already, use an island dressing simply for protection. Compeed is the most well-known and established. Bandaid have their own version, as does BlisterPod. And there are also the "ulcer dressing" brands like Duoderm and Comfeel. Here are some picture that you might be familiar with.The primary goals of treatment should be to prevent expansion of the lesion, reduce discomfort, promote healing, and prevent infection. COMPEED ® specialist blister plaster helps to create the optimal healing environment by absorbing excess fluid, helping to accelerate the body’s natural wound healing process. It sounds clever, but how does it actually work? Blister plasters are hydrocolloid and have two layers. The inner material absorbs the excess fluid and forms a gel over the wound. This retains any moisture which may have gathered and a white bubble develops. When the bubble is visible from the outside, it means the blister is healing. The outer layer forms a seal or ‘second skin’ to protect the blister from bacteria and dirt. It is soft, comfortable and breathable. In addition, the moist and insulated environment allows the body’s own enzymes to heal the wound naturally.
Blisters: Compeed ® specialist plasters will help relieve the pain caused by the blister and help the skin heal.Current cold sore outbreaks can be treated with creams and hydrocolloid patches. The COMPEED ® cold sore patch instantly hides, protects and relieves pain while achieving comparable healing time to commonly used anti-viral 5% cream *. The layer of skin that remains on the top of the blister when it forms is called a 'roof' — this is your body's natural defence against bacteria and infection. If your blister has a roof, it means your body is healing just fine on its own and you should not apply a blister plaster.Doing so may actually cause more harm when the plaster is removed!
