Adhesive bandages are available in standard sizes only and therefore may not be suited for different wound sizes. In Tape type Band Aid we can cut the Band Aid to required length. The adhesive is along either side of the tape and the center portion consists of the chemical solutions. It is similar to normal adhesive tape with center portion conssting of chemical solutions.
Major drawback is that it is not waterproof since ends are open. It advantages include:
1. Required size can be obtained therefore useful for different wound size.
2. It can be rolled around fingers for finger injuries.
3. It can also be used for sealing itching area instead of cream so that clothes are not in touch with itching area therefore reducing itching. Cream applied over itching area may spoil the clothes which can be prevented with this.
4. It allows air circulation which allows quicker healing.
