Best bandage out there

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
My husband and I are both on blood thinners. That means we have to keep a wound covered until it is almost healed otherwise we risk losing the scab and starting all over. These band aids seal all four sides and keeps anything getting into the wound and the bandaid stays on even during a shower. Absolutely love these.

Ripped skin off my feet and ruined trip!

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
I went down to South Carolina for a vacation and tools new pair of shoes. I bought these band aids and put the on the area where the shoes would rub (side of big toe at bottom) and when I went to remove the band aids they ripped big chunks of my skin off on then bottoms of my feet, right where that ball is at bottom of big toe. One started to bleed bad, right through the new band aid I put on that my husband had to run 6 blocks to get while I sat and waited in the boardwalk. My feet hurt so bad I had to go back to the hotel and leave early. We didn't get to the beach, the aquarium, nothing! There is NO way that a band aid should rip skin off of you, NO WAY! Totally ridiculous!

Too wide

Review Questions: 
Age: 55 to 64 years old
Review Text: 
These 1" strips are too wide to use on the fingers, which is Mainly Where I NEED the Tough Strip. The other ones will stick just fine on your knee or elbow. The Tough Strip Needs to be Available in "3/4inch"

Ummmm never again

Review Text: 
I had a sore on my upper bicep. So I used one of these band aids and it ripped 3 layers of skin off and it's completely pink where the adhesives was and hurts way worse than the sore that was there. So I guess if you wanna use these still (I won't) use with extreme caution.

Super tough, excellent for shop use

Review Questions: 
Age: 55 to 64 years old
Review Text: 
This is the official band-aid of our machine shop. Machinists working with sharp tools and metal chips all day go through many many band-aids. None we have used will stay put except this one. The Band-Aid Tough Strip Waterproof is tough as nails and will stay in place during repeated hand washings. We use go-jo and other hand cleaners plus oils, coolants and solvents and the Tough Strips stay on the job. There will be some adhesive residue most times but it is a small price to pay for a bandage that sticks on the job. Highly recommended,Thank you, Paul

"waterproof tough strips" not effective

Review Questions: 
Age: 35 to 44 years old
Review Text: 
My 12 year old son recently had stitches removed from his forearm. We were advised to keep the 1-inch area dry for one week. Not only were the "waterproof" tough strips NOT waterproof, they were not even water resistant. The bandage did not stick when exposed to moisture and the inner pad was wet and essentially ineffective after only 4 minutes of non-aggressive use. I will not use this product again!

Sticky residue when removed. Made a mess of the wound.

While it is waterproof and kept my wound clean, it was a mess when I removed it. Stuck on strings and thick sticky residue left on my skin, next to the wound. Made for more pain, not what you want in a bandage! Will not purchase this product again.
