    I love these NexCare bandages. They have glue all around so they stick down to your skin. The pad is a reasonable size, and the bandage is not excessively larger than the pad.

    If you don't apply them carefully it can cause issues, you tear the packaging open and the bandage is stuck to one side. It has a paper surround stuck to the other side. Peel the bandage off of the wrapper and place it over the wound. Then press down on the paper surround and peel it off the back of the bandage. This will leave the bandage on your skin. Make sure it is pressed down all around and you are done.

    Too Much Wrapper

    The wrapper stuck to the bandage and was very hard to remove without damage. Perhaps these had been in inventory too long. I would not buy again.

      The two best features to this bandage are 1) sticks all the way around the wound. No gaps. 2) Truly stays on, even after being wet. These bandages can litterally stay on for DAYS and still do not hurt to be removed.

        This band-aid STAYS ON! It seals off the affected area. It really is waterproof. I've had one on for three days (and 3 baths) and it still stayed on.

        The first time you apply this brand / type, it can be hard to apply, but after this initial time, they are easy.

        You cannot RE-APPLY these band-aids (-to adjust). But, this is a small price to pay for a band-aid that stays on until YOU remove it.

        The best waterproof bandage, and bandage of any type I've come across. These take some practice to learn how to apply, but once you have the hang of it, they are well worth it. These do not come off until you remove them just about anywhere you apply, except sometimes the hands if you wash a lot. They are low profile, disecrete because they are clear, and they are waterproof indeed. I keep them at home, in my purse and at work.

            This is the only bandaid I"ve found that's really waterproof. It's easy to remove and leaves no stickiness. Doesn't pull the skin like others when removing. I've used these bandaids at work, washing dishes, and outside getting sweaty and they don't come off or peel til I remove them.

              These are far and away the best bandages for things like cuts on fingers and blisters on feet. They're the only bandaids I've ever used that stay on even in the shower.

                  I self-inject medication and frequently use the smallest to cover the site. I don't like using any other brand because this adheres the best and feels the best and practically disappears when it's on my skin. It's just the best!

                      These bandages adhere very well and do not budge even after exposure to multiple wasings and perspiration. They move with the skin and curl at the edges only after a day or longer. The manner in which they seal has pros and cons. They stick so well that nothing gets to the wound, not dirt, not liquid, no contaminants at all. The flip side is that they will hold moisture from the wound inside, blood, drainage etc. and the wound will stay moist. Keep an eye on that. But, for a straight forward clean cut where edges meet, for me there is not a better product for rapid healing. Remove from wrapper carefully so edges do not stick upon each other.

                        I wish you could buy just the small size. These stick to rounded areas, even fingertips, much better than the flexible strips or dots. They stop bleeding and prevent infection.
