Ouch I cut my finger at work, not much but it was in a position where the cut kept opening. So I went to the first aid box all I could find in plasters were fabric ones., now I know some fabric plasters bring me up in a rash so instead of a plaster I cut and used a small piece of micropore tape .
Micropore tape is a sticky paper like material tape it is used for holding bandages and dressings in place. Its useful for that purpose as when I had a different finger dressing after slicing my finger badly I held a finger dressing on with it. However on this occasion it was only a tiny cut and I wanted to stop it opening and bleeding also to keep some of the dirt out.
Micropore tape is porous and breathable, I did wet my piece of tape several times when I washed hands and it was firmly stuck down and did not come off but if wet for a long time it would come off.
This tape did the job I needed it for I only needed it on for a couple of days as my wound began to heal and not open so easily. When I removed it I just pulled it off them washed and rubbed at the small amount of sticky residue that was left on my finger
As I said I have used this micropore to hold a dressing in place either at the ends of the dressing or over the top of a dressing. I cut the dressing with scissors but it’s possible to just tear it with your hand.
Micropore held my dressing well sticks to skin well. I would recommend this micropore form first aid 4 sports
