Myth 5: Plastic plasters do not breathe
The truth: Plastic plasters do breathe. All Salvequick’s plasters are breathable, however some plasters on the market are not. Salvequick also has plasters that are 100% waterproof while at the same time allowing the skin to breathe. They stop water penetrating from outside but allow passage from the inside.
Myth 6: You should pierce blisters
The truth: You should not pierce blisters. The blister, and the liquid it contains, protect the skin being formed and the underlying layers of skin from being damaged.
Myth 7: Using plasters can cause germ breeding
The truth: A wound should be covered with a plaster to protect it from bacteria. Plasters prevent bacteria from entering the wound if they are sealed around all edges of the wound pad. Salvequick has many plasters in the portfolio with these features.
Myth 8: Minor wounds can be left untreated
The truth: small wounds should be treated since they can be infected and cause medical problems if not. They need to be cleaned properly and protected with a plaster.
