1. Cleanse

Cleansing the wound from dirt and bacteria is an essential first step to enable optimal healing. To prevent wound infections, spray the Elastoplast Wound Spray from a distance of approximately 10 cm onto the entire wound area. Repeat if necessary, then gently dry the wound and surrounding skin area with a sterile compress.
Important: A minor wound will soon stop bleeding. If it continues, apply more gauze pads, keep pressure on the wound and seek medical advice.

3. Heal

Help your wound heal safely, quickly and with a lower risk of scarring. Apply Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment regularly until your wound has healed completely. Carefully apply a thin film one to two times per day. Make sure the opening of the tube does not get in contact with your wound. Repeat regularly until the healing is completed. The Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment can be used on open minor superficial wounds and at any stage of the healing process. If necessary, cover the wound with a plaster, dressing or compress.

Questions (5)

  • 1. How often should I change the fixation?

    Fixation tapes are used for fixation of a wound pad or dressing. Usually, it is recommended to change the wound dressing daily for hygiene reasons.
  • 2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a bandage?

    It is one of the wound care myths that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered and let air to them helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! Research shows that covered wounds heal more efficiently and have a reduced risk of infection. Elastoplast products provide protection until the wound is completely healed.
  • 3. When should I consult a doctor?

    We recommend contacting a medical professional under the following circumstances:

    •  if the wound is deep and causing major bleeding 
    •  if the wound shows signs of infection such as redness, warmth, pain and swelling 
    •  if there are embedded foreign objects in it 
    •  in case of animal or human bites 
    •  if the wound is in the area of the face 
    •  if there is insufficient tetanus vaccination 
    •  and of course always when you have questions or are uncertain.
  • 4. What if my wound gets infected and suppurates?

    You should contact a medical professional if you recognize signs of infection. This is not only the occurrence of pus but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In case of infection the wound will need medical care and special medical treatment.
  • 5. How can I cushion the wounds?

    You can use Elastoplast sterile compress to cushion your wounds. Sterile compresses like this are recommended by WHO and Red Cross for home first aid kits. This sterile compress made of soft and pure cotton protects large wounds such as cuts, grazes, burns, and lacerations.
