Nexcare Sensitive Skin Products

 

It’s as easy as ripping off a bandage!

 

This is such a confusing saying. Literally speaking, it’s not always that easy. 

When I had my gallbladder out a few years back, the absolute worst part of recovery was the many bandages and tapes that covered the incision sites. They made my skin so incredibly itchy, to the point of painful. It was an intense feeling of discomfort that made my recovery way worse than it should have been. Plus, I never considered myself a person with sensitive skin before then which proves that a sensitivity can happen to anyone. 

So, when my kids {or anyone for that matter}, claim that bandages aren’t comfortable – I take it seriously since I know the feeling all too well. Yet those bandages are necessary, for cleanliness and health when healing.

Not to mention, one bad experience with bandages can affect kids from that moment on. You’ll get a fight to put one on in the first place, but then bigger hassle when it comes time to take them off. Actually, It wasn’t too long ago that I battled it out with one of my twins over a bandage on the knee that truly needed to come off. 

Yet, it is the season! Summer fun and playground play makes for many scrapes and cuts. No matter how careful anyone is, accidents happen. Just last week one of my twins suffered a flip-flop malfunction and road rash resulted. Days before that, a bike tip over left more of a mark than the tear stains on the collar. This last example wasn’t the kids either. Ouch! 

Luckily, there’s now a line of Nexcare Sensitive Skin products to relieve extra unnecessary strain on your skin when dealing with minor injuries. Silicone-based with an adhesive technology that delivers reliable fixation, these new products hold securely yet are kind to the skin upon removal.

Two Nexcare Sensitive Skin products and their benefits:

  • Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads have an innovative adhesive silicone technology unlike any other dressing in the market place. Ideal for protecting wounds such as cuts, minor burns, abrasions and post-surgical incisions. They are absorbent, non-stick pads that wick fluids away from the wound. Repositionable and water resistant, these are hypoallergenic adhesive and latex free and are clinically designed for fragile or sensitive skin
  • Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Tape is a new consumer product that is clinically designed for fragile or sensitive skin. Features a constant adhesive strength for as long as it’s left in place, unlike traditional tape that increases adhesion over time. This tape tears easily by hand, no scissors needed, and are repositionable. They have a patented paper blend backing for breathability and are gentle on the skin when in place and during removal.

It didn’t take long after we received the new Nexcare Sensitive Skin products, that we needed them. It was one of those, ‘Mom, I have a cut and it hurts … I dunno what happened’ situations. I chalk those up to kid-life, and always busy from sun up to sun down.

It wasn’t a serious cut, but enough to cause complaints. It needed coverage so it was out of sight and out of mind. A couple days later when it came time to take the adhesive pad, there was no fuss at all. My daughter made that ‘bracing yourself’ face just as I was about to take it off, but that was replaced with a ‘meh’ look seconds later and she happily bounced off to the other room. I didn’t even have to bribe or use distraction tactics to get the job done.

Phew. 

For yourself, your kids and anyone else that needs some first aid and skin TLC from time to time, have the new Nexcare Sensitive Skin products on hand. It just makes those incidents a little better, since they are big enough deals on their own without the complications of skin irritation. We all can use this bit of relief.
