    I purchase a lot of products for clients to either improve or prevent scarring. This is hands down one of the best both in price and effectiveness. There are 5 pads that you can cut to size (thus getting more bandages per box) and they will stay on for several days, even with a shower (try not to soak them, or they will peel off of course). I've even written to the company, begging for larger sizes! These beat the medical grade silicone patches that are 3 times this price.

    I have a small, slow-healing ulcer on my foot and every bandage I tried, even the ones the doctor gave me, irritated it doing more damage than healing. Not to mention I have a latex sensitivity. After doing some research online I found out about these bandages and tried them and not only did they not irritate, but they relieved pain and they contained no latex like most standard bandages do.

    But every time I order them, they're different. They used to be a nice thickness that cushioned wounds and the whole bandage consisted of hydrocolloid material edge to edge, which meant I could cut the larger ones in half and get a little more use out or the box.

    Now, they've not only gotten smaller, but the little dot of hydrocolloid in the center of the smaller size bandage which now has a non-hydrocolloid border(they laughingly call it large) is just barely large enough to cover my ulcer. The material has also gotten thinner and doesn't cushion the wound at all.

    I have purchased these bandages now 3 or 4 times over the last 6 months and EVERY time I got them, the product was different and each time the quality declined a little more. They don't even look like the bandage pictured on the box anymore.

    I'm giving up on them and starting the search again for a suitable product.

            They are very thin and difficult to apply. The wound leaks through the sides. The original design were much better. Why the change? New design is a waste of money!

            There is an error in your product description. Your ad states 2 extra large & 3 large bandages in each box. However, there's only one extra large & 4 large per box. The fourteen boxes of my last two orders were each missing an extra large bandage.

            I always keep these around for burns and abrasions. It provides a nice barrier to protect the damaged skin. It takes away some of the pain from minor burns. No need to keep it dry. You can shower or wash hands as usual. I cut them to size for use on small burns. I put one bandage on and trim it as it starts to curl on the edges. By time the bandage falls off the burn is generally gone. Good addition to your first aid kit.

              I have very thin skin therefore I get cuts easily. After cleaning cut, I apply this and it heals so much quicker, better and most of the time I do not have a scar. I carry it in my purse all the time and I am so thankful to have it.

                My husband works at a chemical plant and occassionally gets burned from steam hoses. These pads are the best for relieving the pain and healing the burn with little or no scarring. They offer the largest size pad (extra large), but I do wish it was a little bit larger for bigger burns. We had to use two of the extra large and overlapped them about 1/2" or the liquids would seep out between the seam. As an added protection, we also used one Nexcare Tegaderm 4" x 4-3/4" Dressing Film on top. I'll make a point to keep these on hand.

                    As road cyclists and mountain bikers, my husband and I sometimes hit the road literally, and wind up with "road rash", scraped and raw skin, and the risk of infection. Gauze just sticks to the wound, what a painful mess. We have found that Dr's Choice for Burns, Scalds and Abrasions works amazingly fast and effectively to promote the healing process, while preventing exposure to contamination, air and infection. Just clean the wound, cover with Dr's Choice and leave it for days. When you remove the bandage, it's amazing - the rash is healed, fresh pink skin! We swear by it!

                      We cut to size, use on all cuts, blisters, scrapes & burns. The pain stops immediately & heals without scarring. This is a wonderful product we order again & again. I highly recommend these. No ointments necessary, just put them on dry & leave on until they fall off. Cuts heal superfast using this product!
