Description

If you use a waterproof plaster for swimming, it is usually made using a flexible and waterproof material. They are often transparent, so you don’t have to think about matching the plaster to your skin tone. They’re durable and also breathable so that your wound can continue to heal even when covered up. Some waterproof plasters for wounds feature a wound pad with antiseptic silver, which helps to protect your wound even more. Another bonus of a waterproof plaster is that it’s not just water that it protects your wound from. If you’re off to the beach, you can make sure to keep sand away too – you definitely don’t want to get sand into a cut or scrape. Waterproof wound dressings are an essential medical product designed to protect wounds from external contamination and provide a moist environment for faster healing. These dressings are made up of adhesive films, foam, or hydrocolloids that are waterproof and can be worn for several days without needing to be changed. They are ideal for people who require showering or swimming but still need to keep their wounds clean and dry. Waterproof wound dressings are also useful in preventing infections and promoting faster healing, making them a must-have in any first aid kit. shoppingListJS = new ShoppingListJS({storeId: '11352',catalogId: '28501',langId: '-1'}, {id: '1311118', name: 'Boots Faster Healing Waterproof Dressing', image: '', type: 'ItemBean', components: {}, skus: []}, {}, "shoppingListJS"); Clean the affected area with water, a mild antiseptic solution or antiseptic wipe and then pat dry. Ensure that the affected area is completely dry before applying the dressing. Using waterproof plasters and bandages to cover wounds will help to protect them while you swim so that they can heal properly. Before applying a plaster or bandage, it’s essential to clean the wound so that you’re not trapping any bacteria underneath the plaster or bandage. Use clean water, an antibacterial spray or antibacterial wipe to clean the wound, then make sure to dry it too. Once the wound is clean and dry, you can use your choice of waterproof cover for swimming. Make sure that your hands are also clean when you clean the wound and cover it.

If bleeding persists or the wound becomes reddened, swollen, painful or does not appear to heal, seek medical advice An open or still healing wound is at risk of getting infected if you don’t care for it. It’s important to keep it clean, which includes covering it up to keep bacteria out. When you go swimming with a healing wound, microorganisms in the water can cause infections, especially when you’re not swimming in a clean, chlorinated pool. Spending a long time in the water can also cause your skin to swell, which affects the ability of wounds to heal properly. Sometimes it might be painful to expose a healing wound to water too, even if it’s only a small sting. Covering your wound, even when swimming in a treated pool, is the best thing to do. There are lots of different plaster sizes and shapes that can help you to keep a wound covered while you’re swimming. It’s necessary to get a good seal on a plaster and try to avoid any wrinkles, where the water and bacteria might find their way in. That’s why selecting the right plaster can make a difference. You can find small and large waterproof plasters, different shapes, and some plasters designed for specific areas, like your fingers. Waterproof fingertip plasters are the perfect size to protect an injury on your finger as you swim. Summer is the best time for swimming, whether you go to your local pool, take a trip to the beach or even enjoy some wild swimming. Whether you’re swimming in the great outdoors or in a sterilised pool, doing so safely is vital. One of the things to keep in mind is how to care for wounds when swimming, and protect them from infection or further injury. Waterproof plasters and bandages are essential items to have in your first aid kit if you love spending time in the water during the summer. Covering a wound that is still healing protects it while you swim or splash about in the water.
