Effect of wound dressing
"Woundplast, also known as benzalkonium chloride patch, is commonly known as a bactericidal elastic bandage. As the name suggests, many people apply it as soon as they have a wound. It is the most commonly used surgical medication in people's lives, so it is commonly known as a" hemostatic plaster. "". The bandage is mainly composed of a flat cloth adhesive tape and an absorbent pad, which has hemostatic and wound protection effects. The bandage is suitable for small wounds with relatively shallow wounds, neat and clean wounds, little bleeding, and no need for suturing.

At the same time, we should seize the time to go to the nearest hospital for regular disinfection treatment to avoid causing unnecessary infection.
There are many types of band-aids on the market. The original intention of band-aids is to suppress bleeding and only apply to small wounds.

Band-aids are not suitable for all wounds. Generally, bandages are mainly used for small and shallow wounds, especially for cuts that have neat, clean incisions, few bleeding, and do not require suturing, such as knife cuts, cuts, and glass scratches. For large, deep, and foreign body wounds, it is not advisable to use a bandage. In this case, it is necessary to seek medical attention in a timely manner. For contaminated or infected wounds, such as severe skin abrasions, it is not appropriate to use a bandage. Wounds with boils, suppurative infections, and various skin diseases should not be treated with bandages.
