  • New bandage to me.

    First we had cloth wraps, then cotton gauze with cotton puffs.
    Next generation were these newfangled bandaid's. Paper with adhesives and a cotton center, then plastic and back again to cloth, then a new-skin flexible type.

    Yesterday I went all out and purchased this weird new type - super expensive 1.25 per bandage.

    They call it Hydroseal and it sucks the wound clean using your bodies plasma to create a synthetic scab. I keep wanting to take it off but the instructions say when it's time to change the adhesives will release, then you clean and reapply. No need for creams or salves.

    I'll let you know if this expensive bandage is worth it.

        That's both the hydroseal and the new skin one. They now have some with anti-bacterial medication already on the pad. I was told not to use them for the drain tube hole that thing is deep! I don't know why they didn't stitch the hole like they did the resections but it may be due to the infection.

        Pretty cool bandaid and a great innovation I think. Rather expensive though.
