Some people believe that a minor cut or scrape should be left uncovered so that the wound can be "aired out" and achieve better healing. However, extensive research has shown that even minor wounds may heal faster and better - with less likelihood of infection or scarring - if they are cleaned, treated and kept covered. This easy-to-follow, 3-step method begins with a thorough washing of the wound with mild soap and water. Next, an antibiotic spray or salve helps protect the wound from infection. Last, and just as important, the cut or scrape should be kept covered to prevent dirt and infecting agents from entering the wound and to also prevent rubbing, that may re-open a cut.
Over 90 Years of Band-Aid® Brand
The concept of a ready-made adhesive bandage was invented in 1920 by Josephine and Earle Dickson of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Instead of making each bandage by hand every time one was needed, Earle - who was a cotton buyer at Johnson & Johnson - took a longer strip of adhesive tape and placed a piece of gauze on the strip at intervals, protecting the pre-fabricated strip with a long piece of crinoline (an open-weave cotton fabric with a stiffening fill). Whenever a bandage was needed, all Josephine needed to do was cut a bandage to length, strip off the protective piece and apply it to the wound. The Band-Aid® was born!
