As the weather gets warmer we like to get more active as a family and enjoy the outdoors. We always have our gear ready to go for a day out hiking and that means the first aid kit has to be ready for minor cuts and scrapes along the way. Our family has a few needs that have to be met when it comes to first aid supplies:
- Latex allergy
- Sensitive skin
- Fear of painful bandage removal
- Cleanliness of the wound area
I have to admit before I had kids I wasn't that worried about germs and bacteria in cuts but now my germophobia has kicked into high gear. I'll be the first to admit it kids aren't the cleanest and they don't think about the consequences of getting dirt into an open wound, so I try to do everything I can to prevent that.
We've found that Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Adhesive Bandages are ideal for fragile and sensitive skin and offers me a peace of mind with their neat features including:
- Water-resistant adhesive
- Hypoallergenic and made from latex-free materials
- Removes cleanly with minimal hair pulling making them pain-free
- Holds securely in place
- Absorbent, non-stick pad wicks fluids away from the wound
From mud pies to water fights the Nexcare™ bandages are my choice for the kids especially when it comes to pain-free removal. We have an assortment of Nexcare™ products from eye patches to adhesive pads and even low trauma tape (that has a permanent home in my purse).

The box comes with twenty bandages in assorted shapes and sizes for all kinds of minor cuts and scrapes. I like how they cover the whole area and don't let dirt and germs in. These bandages use 3M's innovative medical and adhesive technologies to provide the ultimate level of protection while the 360-degree seal is fantastic for keeping out germs and dirt.
