    no problem here..amazing what a tooth can do to the wrapper on a bandaid! hard part is holding the "tabs" open so I can get the durn thing stuck on one side so I can get the other side stuck on too! (usually have to put one on 1 handed as its hard to do 2 handed where I collect my cuts and scrapes...

    Curex (with the "pull the two sides apart") are okay. Bandaids (with the "pull the string") are a major pain.

    I agree they are a pain to get open. I usually need one after I have tried to open one of the various blister packs that stuff comes in today.

    I like the KENDALL CURITY, got a big box of them.

    They also stay on good, don't roll up.

    I use the electrical method - wrap anything clean around the wound and then electrical tape around over it :)

    when you bleed 10- 15 minutes like a stuck hog from a berry bush scratch, it gets pertty messy

    We actually used to do that down the mill on occasion, just a cut up cloth, then tape.

    They were crazy about reported injuries, kept scores in every office, a macho thing!

    Yeah anything until you can clean, disinfect and dress it properly. Don't really want to mess with any infections.
