Baby Oil to Remove BANDAIDS
LOVE your web site. You guys may already know this, but products
like BANDAIDs are easily removed without trauma to the skin by soaking the
dressing in baby oil.
The oil loosens
the adhesive and the strip and it lifts off after 10 minutes!
Its a God send
for children suffering from skin conditions. -Kathy H.
Response: Nice tip, Kathy.
Kids with P may be susceptible to new lesions forming where wounds,
cuts and scrapes happen. (This
is called the Koebner Phenomenon.) I
know how many times I’ve either removed a grandchild’s BandAid, or
watched them remove it, and seen the scab come away, too — usually
opening the sore all over again.
Anything to get
the dressing off without tearing healthy skin or scabs is great.
Our only challenge, now, will get them to hold still for 10
Thanks again, Kathy. -Ed
