I used to be on my vacations last year and my hubby cut his finger on a doorway as well as the plasters kept falling off his finger as well as the wound was fairly big and sore, so he needed to keep replacing the covering and we popped into a supermarket to find out if there had anything better to use and we found this delightful small product.
It comes in a fine small little silver and red canister with clear top additionally it has a spray nozzle and when sprayed onto the wound or cut it has a clear liquid which has a strong odor plus it's tacky until it dries and it makes a clear thin film within the wound additionally it keeps it nice and clean, just in the exact same style as a plaster minus the dressing.
It is totally amazing and all that's needed is for the can is held by you 5 to 10cm from the wound to clean the change position before applying the product and spray a light coating and leave to completely dry.
After having a few days it slowly evaporates and then can be re executed if essential plus it does continue a couple of days and you're able to place your hands in water also it's still excellent but my hubby did re apply it after he washed and that was because he felt it likely needed a top up and it was subsequently absolutely fine as before.
The skin can breathe and the and it's clear on your own skin, notably if you are at work that is preferable to looking at an ugly plaster.
It isn't to be utilized on areas that are contaminated and fairly deep wounds as it may cause an irritation.
A 32ml costs Around GBP5.97 depending where it is bought or cheaper for it but it comprises at least and it is well worth the cash
That is a must in my family now, I recommend it to anyone to try, particularly if you have plenty of grazes and wounds and have children as they've been consistently losing.
My little girl wants a plaster for the merest small cut and cutting herself and is always tripping over! She is extremely remarkable.
I had been sick of picking up dirty plasters from round the house that had come off so decided to go to the chemist and ask if they had some that were not really weak and would stay in place longer.
The lady behind the counter said that it was remarkable and she had used it. I have to say I was not convinced but thought I'd give it a go.
It certainly isn't expensive! GBP6 was paid by me for a can. The can held 30 g so wasn't enormous, the woman in the shop told me that the can that was small would do 50 applications which sounded good she also said it was waterproof which again is a bonus when you've kids.
The thing which I believed was good relating to this product after I was something additional to just what a standard plaster would do and began to read about it is that it prevents bacteria from going into the wound that I thought was good
I took it home and waited for the lady in the shop to come in demanding a plaster running and for the next disaster to occur. I just needed to wait 1 day!
I followed the directions when it was used by me which is spray on the area with the Elastoplast and to wash the area which is cut. It was very easy to apply and just coated the place using a thin layer. My daughter thought it was amazing.
You are able to hardly see it when it is done which is good particularly if you've got children and you don't want them continuously covered in dirty plasters. This product really is brilliant it is possible to merely go about your day as regular she went swimming , had a bathroom,etc. Following a couple of days it merely gradually wore off and by that time the wound was healed anyway.
I would definitely recommend the product to anyone with children or who uses plenty of plasters yourself.
I typically buy plasters that are conventional, although as a nurse I'm not unaware of spray coverings to wounds although I'd never seen these exterior of the clinical environment. The convert had been intrigued as to so I purchased Elastoplast really just for this particular function and the way the it Spray Plaster actually worked! The spray plaster comes in a stray can that contains 32mls of the spray plaster solution and this costs GBP6.65 from Boots. If you compare this to the cost of normal plasters subsequently it really is really rather expensive and I believed it would need to be pretty great to actually be economically viable to choose this over conventional plasters. Apparently there is enough applications in this can to survive for 40 uses, but clearly this is dependent on the location which you are spraying and the convert will have to mention that this can be very a generous overestimation of the quantity of applications that this can would deliver.
Spraying the spray on is simple plus a normal aerosol fashion nozzle delivers it in which you need the area by holding it about 10cm from the wound that you direct onto it. It is delivered in a fine mist, although if you get too close to the wound then it really is wetter and it might drip and so it's essential to have it a little way away from the region. When it's put on, it is not hot and can feel just like just a little short, sharp shock to the device, but it can not burn or harm and so it's even okay for young kids. Once it's on, it is possible to understand that it is plasticky and slightly shiny appearing - but it's certainly less unsightly than an Elastoplast plaster also it's fairly subtle.
One of the negative points of this plaster is that the place has to have stopped bleeding before the spray is applied, otherwise you simply end up with a bit of a mess. Another point, particularly if this is used on children, is that often kids are "better" and less disturbed when the plaster has been applied and they can't see the cut or graze anymore. With this product the plaster seal is transparent and to remain more distressed for longer and so seems therefore the child can always see the wound. Having said that, a major advantage is that it seals the entire place while staying breathable - whereas often plasters permit the wound region to breath and don't provide an all round seal. There is also in removing the plaster no pain and so there's no tearing the plaster in the skin as you do so and holding your breath!
I actually don't think I am a convert actually with this product. Maybe if it comes down in cost then the convert might consider buying it again previously, but I simply do not think it is worth the extra cents as it actually does the same job.
We purchased this as a practical option and as something which could possibly provide instant aid if someone cut himself.
Regrettably I think we were just attempting to see new technology worked and wanting to try something different. After using this for a while I have determined we should return to old fashioned plasters, as I did not enjoy using these at all.
In essence the Elastoplast spray plaster should permit you to spray over an area using a cut or graze and it supplies a clear, breathable and flexible film within the graze, so that it is a plaster but does not feel rigid and firm to the touch, but ensures your wound can't become infected. It seals out dirt, water and germs, thus will stay solid in shower or the bath along with in other places.
The plaster lasts a few days and eventually dissolves once your skin has been protected by it after a reduction for the most challenging early days.
The spray comes in red canister which seems quite attractive and will fit into a small bag or pocket easily enough and a small silver.
I have to express this product is useful for the most slight abrasion, but also to get a real cut it does not work well.
Equally myself have used this in the ocean and local swimming baths as claimed, meaning I end up finding the plaster has vanished shortly after leaving the water, and it can not adhere in water.
This was an experiment that didn't work, a little pack of plasters is even more streamlined than this spray and I understand they will protect a cut instantaneously, whilst it means I might also be required to take a lotion like savlon or other antiseptic variety to shield from bacteria I feel much more confident that this would really work, whilst I have no confidence in this product as too often it's ended up an as a plastic mess which I simply could not wait to wash off.
At GBP 7 this is not decent or cheap value for money, its not something we will try as we'll return to traditional plasters from now on. Sometimes the old ways are the most effective ways.
I need more from an expensive cutting edge product as opposed to ability to deal with minor abrasions, as I could readily do this with some cold water, I needed something which did just what it said it could, sadly this appears nice as a product but is not what I wanted.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a can that you spray onto cuts and wounds and when it has dried it protects your wound and keeps it clean like a plaster would.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
When you cut yourself wash and dry the wound thorough then spray this on. It dries to be clear but you still can see it on your skin so that is reassuring that it is there and working.
WHAT I THINK
I bought this only because it was on sale and very cheap, there are 50 applications in this can so I think paying £4 is value because 50 good quality plasters would cost more than that.
It is easy to spray and I like that it is flexible when it is on my skin because I am a beautician so it is often that I burn or cut my fingers and it is hard to keep a plaster on when you are moving your hands all of the time. This does not come unstuck even if I have got to bend my fingers a lot when I am using curling tongs or applying make up on somebody.
My wounds always heal good and the spray stops some of the pain because it seals the cut better than plasters.
It works on small cuts best because it does not hold the edges of larger cuts together properly and that is a pity because sometimes I know that my cut will be a little bit too large for this and then I have to use a sticking plaster instead.
My wounds and cuts are kept very clean when I use this and I like the way that it seals my skin all around the wound so that dirt cannot get inside from any angle around the spray plaster.
I am very happy with this and I will buy it again because it is very useful in my first aid kit for myself and my children also.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Everyone is bound to use plasters at least a few times in an average year I would assume. If you have children probably more often. And isn't it annoying when they start peeling off and you have to replace them a lot and if it is a cut on your finger or hand you can't wash your hands properly cause you don't want to get it wet and replace it. This is where the Elastoplast spray plaster comes in handy.
It comes in a spray can, contains 40ml and costs around £6. Its a little cheaper when you buy it online but I think it is an ok price. It is supposed to contain 70 applications but I think it is more like 50 or so. It is available in most drugstores, I think I bought mine from Boots.
You spray it on your cleaned wound from around an inch away and it forms a seal over the wound or cut. It is waterproof so you can wash your hands more easily and it is breathable, which means air can get to it to aid better healing.
I found this really useful for small cuts and wounds, especially if they are on knuckles and in places you can't get a plaster to stick very easily. If it is anything bigger though you are better off with a plaster I find.
Overall I would recommend this to have in your first aid kit at home. Its probably not so handy to carry around, a plaster is much easier to pop in your bag. But for use at home it is great. And if you can get it a little cheaper than on the high street it is definitely worth it.
The sprayed-on film is not inflexible and will be applied even in difficult to reach areas. The shield is watertight and offers multi-day protection.
So clean and dry the affected places before application.Hold can 5-10 cm From area that is affected. Spray a light coating and let dry for approximately a minute. The plaster gradually disappears over time.
Elastoplast Spray Plaster is a convenient alternative to standard plasters. The spray plaster stays on and sprays on, even on the most awkward of area. Elastoplast Spray Plaster will protect wounds and grazes in those awkward regions, like knuckles, elbows and knees, from dirt and germs.
Elastoplast Spray Plaster is flexible, breathable and waterproof, meaning that you can shower and bath with all the confidence that you're wound will continue covered. Its clear colour makes it perfect for practically any skin tone. Best of all, there's no unpleasant tugging trying to get rid of the plaster as Elastoplast Spray Plaster will stay in place to get some days before gradually disappearing as your skin recovers.
Elastoplast Spray Plaster continues up to 50 applications and is appropriate for the entire family.
It truly is a good product and ideal for inconvenient areas around the hands which have a dreadful habit of splitting open repeatedly when you get little cuts.
Needs that are only spraying quite lightly otherwise it can get a bit difficult. I prefer this to plasters as you don't get the sweaty area encircling the cut. Expensive but lasts a long time. My last lot had contents at it 's expiry even with regular use.
I have used this product a couple of times, it works okay but really traditional plasters win for me, I am not a convert by any means. It is handy for use on places where a traditional plaster wouldn't really stick properly or would probably fall off though, so it is useful to have in your first aid kit.
It also has the added bonus of antiseptic properties which kills two birds with one stone. It doesn't smell very nice when sprayed but that can be forgiven. The first time I used this stuff I had gotten a large blister in the area between my thumb and my forefinger, the blister had burst and was red raw. A traditional plaster didn't work, it kept falling off and didn't cover the area well enough. So I went to the chemist and bought some of this and returned to my car when I read the directions on the back, I then sprayed it on my hand and all was well for about thirty seconds when unbelievable pain began pulsating from my hand, I had nothing to wash it off and couldn't breath from the pain at first. I drove home and washed it off immediately.
After that I didn't use this product for years, I was afraid that I would have a repeat experience of the pain so avoided it. I eventually ended up using it on some minor cuts and it worked perfectly, a little stinging, nothing major though, it did it's job well.
I think because it was a burst blister that was very painful already and the skin underneath being exposed is what made it hurt so much the first time I used it. It is useful to have but it is important to be aware that it can hurt before you use it. This will not replace traditional plasters for me or anyone really, I haven't bought it again as I just don't think it gets enough use to justify the cost.
Elastoplast aerosol plaster is simply that. Spray it onto minor wounds and grazes to form a breathable and clear flexible film that seals out soil, water and bacteria.
Among the finest things about that product is the fact that it removes the 'aaaaargggh!' component of common plasters wears off over several days once used. It is the product for anybody that really doesn't enjoy the pain of removing an average plaster from a tender wound scab away and to get the plaster tearing skin. It is not difficult to apply and dries rapidly and your wound can heal naturally and rapidly, also it stays on in shower and the bath. It is exceptionally flexible, so great for use etc. to joints,
It is great for wearing under clothing also - where I discovered a common plaster to cause pain to your wound on my hip, on account of the movement of my garments pulling over it as I walked, the clothing go readily within the 2nd skin created via this product, causing no distress.
Determined by where it is applied, how tight your garments are it can stick to your own garments on removal of clothing because of heat, causing a little bit of distress, but nothing get closed to the pain of removing an average plaster.
Can not be applied to a wound that was seeping, as the spray will not dry, so the wound will not seal.
Don't use in the facial skin. Prevent contact with mucous membranes and eyes. Don't use on deep, contaminated or secreting burns or wounds. A prickling sensation may happen briefly upon use. Don't inhale the spray. Solvent abuse can kill instantaneously.
EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE. Keep from sources of ignition - don't smoke. Keep out of range of kids.
I can not believe that I am writing a review on something as fundamental as plasters. But it would go to demonstrate that it is well worth the cash and a great product. It is around GBP5.99 and you could get it from chemists and various Supermarkets.
At first, I was undecided on the merits of the Elastoplast spray plaster. At almost £6, it seemed a little expensive, so I din't really want to buy it, if it wasn't going to work.
Following an injury I picked up whilst rowing where I sustained a deep blister down to the muscle at the base of my finger (on the inside), I found it very difficult to apply normal plasters as it was in such an awkward place. Because of this, I had to find an alternative.
I bought the spray on plaster as it promised to give effective protection from infection and to keep and small wounds, blisters etc clean and dry. It certainly gave the protection I had hoped for but stung massively when I applied it! It is easy to use and a little goes a long way-I have used it many times since then and still find I have plenty left.
I don't think it replaces traditional plasters for everything, but is certainly useful for things like grazes where a thin film is more easily applied than a bulky plaster.
People have said that it is expensive; in reality it is not really that bad-it markets itself on being able to cover around 50 wounds. If you think of the price of 50 odd plasters, it would probably equate to more than £6 dependant on the size of the wound and the frequency in which the plaster needs changing.
Overall, I would recommend this product for difficult places where you need coverage but can't fit a plaster. Stings a bit on application though!
I bought the spray plaster because I have a habit of picking up minor scratches etc and it's useful to have a bit of handy waterproof anti bacterial protection.
The can is small and easy to keep in sports bag- especially handy for swimming.
The spray is easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It is advisable to have a tissue or similar to quickly wipe off overspill (although leaving it where it is probably wouldn't do any harm). Also be aware that it is a bit sticky before drying.
It does sting slightly when applied to broken skin. It passes very quickly but do be aware especially if applying on a child.
Once in place the plaster is clear and almost invisible. It does shine a little bit.
The spray is not a substitute plaster for a deeper cut as it will not stem bleeding or absorb blood.
The plaster does not need to be removed like a traditional one. It gradually comes away her a few days due to washing etc. It can be a bit messy if scratched off so discourage this.
All in all I would recommend it for minor cuts, scratches and abrasions.
My little girl is always tripping over and cutting herself and needs a plaster for the slightest little cut! She is very dramatic.
I was sick of picking up dirty plasters from around the house that had come off so decided to go to the chemist and ask if they had some that were really strong and would stay in place longer.
It was then that I heard about Elastoplast spray plaster. The lady behind the counter said she had used it on her son and that it was brilliant. I have to say I wasn't convinced but thought I would give it a go.
It certainly isn't cheap! I paid £6 for a can of it. The can held 30g so wasn't big, the lady in the shop told me that the little can would do approx 50 applications which sounded fine she also said it was waterproof which again is a bonus when you have children.
The thing that I thought was good about this product when I started to read about it is that it prevents bacteria from entering the wound which I thought was good and was something extra to what a standard plaster would do
I took it home and waited for the next disaster to occur and for her to come running in demanding a plaster. I only had to wait 1 day!
I followed the instructions when I used it which is to wash the area that is cut and then spray the area with the Elastoplast. It was very easy to apply and just coated the area with a thin layer. My daughter thought it was amazing.
You can hardly see it when it's done which is good especially if you have kids that wear skirts etc and you don't want them constantly covered in dirty plasters. This product really is brilliant you can just go about your day as normal she had a bath, went swimming etc and nothing affected it. After a couple of days it just gradually wore off and by that time the wound was healed anyway.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with kids or who uses a lot of plasters yourself
Ok, I admit that when I first bought this product it was not actually for use on humans. This was purchased as my vet suggested it might be the ideal thing to use on my dogs paws, as he was having lots of trouble with road salt getting in to the cracks on his paws. I searched around at purchased this in my local chemist. At £6.75 for the little tin, I did find it very expensive but it does say that it should last for 50 uses, and it is something different so I figured it was worth a go.
On the dog, this simply didn't work. I found that it skooshed out of the tin far too quickly, meaning it was virtually impossible to apply a thin layer as the directions suggest. It dried quickly but didn't seem to form any sort of protective barrier and was pretty much as good as useless. I chucked it in the medicine cupboard and forgot about it until recently when my husband cut himself chopping an onion.
Pleased to get the chance to try this out on a human, I dug it out and followed the directions. Again, I felt that too much came out. It dried completely invisible so it was impossible to tell whether a barrier had been formed. The directions state that the seal should last for 2-3 days however hours later, after washing his hands a few times, my husband was peeling bits of gum from the area around his cut. In the end up, we dug out the traditional plasters and used these instead.
Overall, I think that this is a great idea but this product just didn't work for us.
We bought this as a handy option to carry around and as something which could potentially provide immediate relief if one of the family cut themselves.
Unfortunately I think we were just wanting to see how new technology worked and wanting to try something different. After using this for a while I've decided we should go back to old fashioned plasters, as I didn't enjoy using these at all.
In essence the Elastoplast spray plaster should allow you to spray over an area with a cut or graze and it provides a transparent, breathable and flexible film over the graze, so it is a plaster but doesn't feel rigid and firm to the touch, but ensures your cut can't become infected. It seals out germs, water and dirt, so will stay firm in the bath or shower as well as in other areas.
The plaster lasts a few days and eventually dissolves once it has protected your skin for the most difficult early days after a cut.
The spray comes in a small silver and red canister which looks very attractive and can fit into a small bag or pocket easily enough.
I have to say this product is useful for the most minor abrasion, but for a real cut it doesn't work so well. I have cut myself with a kitchen knife, sprayed this over the bleeding area and initially recoiled through the stinging pain of the spray before having to quickly wash my hands and start again as the plaster did little to stem the bleeding.
Equally I have used this in the sea and local swimming baths and it doesn't stick in water as well as claimed, meaning I end up finding the plaster has disappeared shortly after leaving the water.
This was an experiment that didn't work, a small pack of plasters is even more compact than this spray and I know they will protect a cut immediately, whilst it means I might also need to carry a cream like savlon or other antiseptic variety to protect from bacteria I feel much more confident that this would actually work, whilst I have no confidence in this product as too often it has ended up a as a plastic mess which I just couldn't wait to wash off.
At £7 for 32ml this isn't cheap or decent value for money, its not something we will try again as we'll return to conventional plasters from now on. Sometimes the old ways are the best ways.
I want more from an expensive cutting edge product than the ability to treat minor abrasions, as I could easily do this with some cold water, I wanted something which did exactly what it said it could, unfortunately this looks nice as a product but isn't what I wanted.
I usually buy traditional plasters, although as a nurse I am aware of spray coverings to wounds although I had never seen these outside of the clinical environment. I was intrigued as to how the Elastoplast Spray Plaster actually worked and so I purchased it really only for this purpose! The spray plaster comes in a stray can that contains 32mls of the spray plaster solution and this costs £6.65 from Boots. If you compare this to the price of normal plasters then it is really quite expensive and I felt it would have to be pretty good to actually be economically viable to choose this over traditional plasters. Apparently there is enough applications in this can to last for 40 applications, but obviously this is dependent on the area that you are spraying and I would have to say that this is quite a generous overestimation of the number of applications that this can would deliver.
The idea is that this spray is sprayed onto an area that you would traditionally use a plaster on. Obviously it is intended for minor injuries and anything more major that requires skin closure techniques requires medical treatment, but in terms of just covering and protecting a minor wound then this is the what the product is for. Spraying the spray on is simple and it is delivered by a typical aerosol style nozzle that you direct onto the area where you want it by holding it about 10cm away from the wound. It is delivered in a fine mist, although if you get too close to the wound then it actually is wetter and it can drip and so it's important to have it a little way away from the area. When it is first put on, it is cold and so can feel like a little short, sharp shock to the system, but it doesn't sting or hurt and so it's even okay for young children. Once it is on, it is possible to see that it's slightly shiny and plasticky looking - but it's fairly subtle and it is certainly less unsightly than an Elastoplast plaster. Over time, the plastic coating dissolved, and if you were in the bath or swimming for a prolonged period of time then it dissolved quicker, but generally it would last for a few days.
One of the negative points of this plaster is that the area needs to have stopped bleeding before the spray is applied, otherwise you just end up with a bit of a mess. The other point, particularly if this is being used on children, is that often children are "better" and less upset once the plaster has been applied and they can't see the cut or graze anymore. With this product the plaster seal is transparent and so the child can continually see the wound and so seems to remain more upset for longer. Having said that, a major advantage is that it seals the whole area while remaining breathable - whereas often plasters do not provide an all round seal and allow the wound area to breath. There is also no pain in removing the plaster and so there is no ripping the plaster from the skin and holding your breath as you do so!
I don't think I'm a convert really with this product. Maybe if it comes down in price then I might consider buying it again in the past, but I just don't think it's worth the extra pennies as it really does the same job.
Seals out water, dirt and bacteria / Transparent, breathable and flexible film acts like a second skin.
