First aid kits are important in our family, maybe because Frank was a paramedic or with kids someone is always getting scraped, cut or injured. We have a couple kits on the go our main kit is in the house that has the epi-pen, antibiotic ointment, Tylenol, Benadryl, Band-Aids, gauze, tape and the list goes on. We have smaller kits in the car, trailer and even one for hiking.
I can’t tell you how many times they’ve come in handy especially the first aid kit in the car, it seems like if it isn’t my kids who need a Band-Aid it’s one of their friends. If I had a penny for every time I had to fix a non-existent boo-boo I’d be rich!
But when it comes to supplies I have to keep in mind the sensitive skin of the kids and my allergy to regular medical tape.
First Aid Supplies for Sensitive Skin
With the Nexcare Sensitive Skin lineup you know that the products are reliable and will be gentle on the skin. The lineup is silicone-based and has an adhesive technology that delivers reliable fixation holding securely and gentle on the skin when removing. A few of the products include:
- Nexcare Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads are ideal for protecting wounds such as cuts, minor burns, abrasions and post-surgical incisions.
- Nexcare Sensitive Skin Tape features a constant adhesive strength for as long as it’s left in place, unlike traditional tape that increases adhesion over time.
- Nexcare Sensitive Skin Eye Patch in both regular and junior sizes is great for treating lazy eye and crossed eyes as part of a doctor recommended treatment plan. The breathable patches are great for fragile and sensitive skin with hypoallergenic adhesive that can be repositioned allowing for clean removal.
We’ve added the Nexcare Sensitive Skin lineup to all of our first aid kits and are pleased with how well it holds up and is gentle at the same time. There is no pain greater than ripping off tape or a pad and leaving your skin red and flared, luckily we don’t have to deal with that anymore!
If you’re looking to update your first aid kit for sensitive skin we highly recommend these products!
