How to apply?
When you put on an elastic bandage start below the injury and continue to wrap back up around the injured area. For example, for a knee injury you would start beneath the knee and then wrap the bandage around and above the knee. This helps control swelling better.
Tips for safety and comfort:
- Be careful not to wrap the bandage too tight because it may cut off blood flow.
- To help with blood flow, take off the bandage 2 times a day (if ok with your doctor) . Leave it off for a few minutes and wrap it again.
- If the part of your body with the elastic bandage feels numb or tingling, remove the bandage. Gently rub the area. Rewrap the bandage when the area feels better.
- If the part of your body with the elastic bandage becomes cold or turns blue, remove the bandage and call your doctor.
- wash when it gets dirty and have another elastic bandage to use.
Call your doctor if:
- You have pain or cramping on the body part where the bandage is wrapped.
- You have tingling or numbness that does not go away after removing the bandage.
- The skin around the bandage looks blue, pale, and feels cold.
- You see the redness that was not present when the bandage was first applied.
