3M Nexcare Steri-Strip One thing we have always had in our house due to the sheer amount of times I have cut myself is plasters and steri-strips. Recently I was using a knife to slice some bread when the knife slipped and cut the end of my thumb quite badly. The cut was quite deep and also quite long and almost seemed to peel back. Luckily, my friend who is a nurse said that it did not need stitches, though she recommended using steri strips which we had luckily just bought more of. The Steri-Strips are basically 'Butterfly stitches' and come in different sized packs, though always seem to come in two sizes themselves; 3mm x 75mm and 6mm x 75mm. In ... Read the complete review

I managed to cut my finger open yesterday whilst cutting my cousins hair. I cut quite deep, but just plastered it up and carried on. After changing the plaster 4 times due to the fact it would just keep on bleeding through the plaster. My sister suggested that I tried steristrips as her boyfriend had recently used them on a cut on his hand. I went into Superdrug and asked for some steristrips. They handed me a box of 3M steristrips and I paid for them and was on my way. Steristrips are used to help close and heal small cuts and wounds in the skin, and being exactly what I had, I thought these would be perfect for the job. These strips come in a ...

I always ensure I have a fully stocked first aid box in both my house and car and one of my essential items is Nexcare Steri-Strips manufactured by 3M. I had never heard of this ingenious product prior to meeting my husband, but soon knew all about it after I had a rather nasty accident several years ago. I was standing on one of our kitchen worktops balancing rather awkwardly in an attempt to clean the tops of our wall cupboards. However, I lost my balance, which resulted in me tumbling down and landing on the blade of an extremely sharp knife that imbedded itself into the top of my thigh causing a very deep cut, which was almost 10 cm in ...

For all sorts of fun reasons, the likes of which will make for marvellous dinner-party ice-breakers some day, I'm a veteran of deep cuts - and of the scarring which is so often left behind. Stitches leave you with a line of little complimentary scarlets, and plasters do nothing to close a cut over. Bio-oil is viciously expensive, and shea butter smells. Enter 3M's Steri-Strips. =The Product= Steri-strips are small adhesive strips, intended to close open skin wounds, so reducing scarring and the chance of infection. As the name suggests, they're treated with an antimicrobial substance. They're slightly porous, so as to be breathable, and they come in ... Read the complete review

It's a rerun of 'Psycho' if I cut myself. Even the tiniest nick in the skin looks like a major accident. A friend told me about Steristrips which act in the same way as 'stitches'. They close the skin and stop the bleeding. These transparent strips come in two lengths and they are attached to a plastic backing. They are quite expensive to use so I cut through the plastic and made them into useable lengths. They are still on the plastic but I won't have to worry about cutting them if I need them. All you do is close the cut by pressing gently together with CLEAN hands and use the steristrip to hold it closed. A long cut may take ... Read the complete review
