Band-Aid� Plastic Bandages, One Size, Box Of 60
Literally tore the skin off my body!!!!
So I had a cut on my arm and I applied one of these band-aids. I left it on over night and went to take it off the next morning. The band-aid literally took the skin off my arm. I am not allergic to latex and have never had any problems with band-aids before. You can literally map out the entire area the band-aid was covering on my arm. Now I have a terribly sore and oozing area on my arm. It was literally bleeding and you could see my skin on the band-aid. Worse thing is I still have a box of these band-aids left. There is no way I will use these on myself or my children again!

Has the adhesive changed?
Has the adhesive used on Band-Aid brand bandages changed recently? I have always purchased only Band-Aid brand bandages because all of the other brands give me horrible rashes. However, Band-Aid brand bandages now give me rashes too. If the adhesive formula has changed sometime in the past 10 years, please change it back! Band-Aid was the only brand I was able to use and now there aren't any type of bandages left that do not cause me rashes.

This product is dangerous and terrible
I purchased plastic strips with quiltvent technology to use on a cut on my finger. When I tried to remove the Band-aid I almost took off my skin with it. It was very, very difficult and really hurt to pull it off. It felt like it must have had super glue as an adhesive.
There is nothing wrong with my skin. It is not "thin" nor "fragile"; just plain, normal skin.
When I went to the pharmacy to get a different brand, there were two young women also buying bandages. I told them what had happened to me and they said "oh, yes. We had that happen also".
It would be a very severe wound if these Band-aids had to be pulled off someone's skin that was fragile or if they were used on a child.
I hope you will take them off the market. They are dangerous.

My go to bandages
These are my go-to band-aids to have on hand for the occassion cuts and scratches. Band-aid stays adhered to my skin so much better than any other brands (or generics) I've tried.
