Some issues related to bad aids are as follows:-

  • Moisture is trapped under the adhesive material of the bandage and your skin gets wrinkly
  • Gauze part of the bandages absorb water and stay wet, germs might grow at these wet places
  • Band-aid gets dirty after a few days
  • Band-aids can come off from the wound
  • It is difficult to apply bandages to all parts of the body, they make you feel uncomfortable and hinders the normal movement as well
  • During exercise, swimming or even in hot weather regular band-aids don’t stay on
