If your hand is broken, or the wound is infected. Can medical tape be used? If after using it, if it still doesn't get better for a period of time, is it necessary to continue using it? Let me tell you that medical tape has its functionality, that is, the scope of its application. In many cases, he is not omnipotent. We still have to look at it objectively.

Simply put, its function lies in whether it is good. For medical pressure-sensitive tape, this is mainly reflected in the following aspects: First, whether the material is sufficiently viscous, when the pressure-sensitive tape needs to be attached to the material and skin (for example, when used for surgical towels), the pressure-sensitive tape should be able to firmly Paste on the surface of the material; second, whether it is suitable for pasting on the skin, because most medical tapes need to be pasted on the skin, it should be appropriate, not the stronger the viscosity, the better. The 3M clinical research department evaluates the strength and applicability of the pressure-sensitive tape to the skin through the detection of the peel strength of the pressure-sensitive tape on the skin; third, whether the pressure-sensitive tape can adapt to the corresponding disinfection method, and different sterilization methods can affect the product Performance has different effects. Choosing suitable product sterilization materials is an important part of product design. The functional characteristics of pressure-sensitive tape mainly include these three aspects, which meet the requirements of medical tape.

So, if your hand is broken or something, you can use medical tape, but if it’s a wound infection, you can’t use medical tape. You should choose appropriate medical drugs or other ways to go to the doctor.
