Tesco Childrens Bug Plasters
Advantages: Prettyyyy, budget friendly, quality.
Disadvantages: Not for latex allergy sufferers and won't cater for big cuts.
So I guess I'm just a big kid for buying these, but you cannot complain when you get thirty decent little plasters for just 80p! I cut my hand open on a tin and borrowed a plaster from the first aid box that my landlord keeps in the house, and needed to replace the plaster pretty quick to stop infection. I bought these for 80p from my local Tesco on the day the accident happened!
I can say that applying liberal amounts of Savlon does nothing to reduce the effectiveness of these, obviously you need to try and make sure your hand is as dry as possible before applying any plaster, but certain plasters are more resilient to being applied with another product than others.I replaced these daily as I was concerned for infection, but they were strong plasters which did not fall off too easily and could be worn for washing up or in the bath without aggravating the cut. These sorted my cut finger out and stopped the blood flow as I wrapped it tightly around the wound.
These fun designs are highly recommended for kids or "big kids" like me who needed cheering up after a bad day and a traumatic experience with a baked bean tin and a lot of blood!! These are supposed to be the "girl" design I think as you get pink butterflies and ladybugs, and there are also "boy" designs featuring monkeys, but then again you get some kids that aren't fussy! My boyfriend did look at these questioningly when I bought them, but I'm sure if he needed a plaster due to being as clumsy in the kitchen as me, then he would dress his finger in frolicking ladybirds, but then again he would want to replace it as soon as possible with a boring old beige plaster ;)
I don't think these are suitable for people with latex allergies so you would want to read the back of the pack to double check. They are also not suitable for larger cuts as they are only your standard plaster size. However, they are quite good for stopping blood flow of deep cuts, as my cut was small yet deep as it was a tin cut.
These are Tesco own brand kids plasters, so just available from Tesco or if you do your Tesco shop online, they're on there too.
--Compared to similar products--
You can get some pretty awful quality plasters which you might as well not be wearing for how well they stick, but these did the trick for me.
Summary: Much more fun than boring old Elastoplast & add that to being budget friendly and you have a winner!
