Band-Aid� Brand Flexible Fabric Tough-Strips?, Box Of 20
Needs WARNING LABEL: soak intensely before removing
I have used bandaid products all of my life! these tough strips need a huge warning label on them to not try to remove without soaking in water first for a long period of time! 5 days ago I tried to remove one of these from my wrist. I have never felt such excruciating pain in my life as the bandaid literally removed a huge 3/4 inch x 1 inch chunk of my skin with it, leaving me bleeding a lot, not a tiny lil booboo! the wound I have still, now 5 whole days after bandage removal is far more crucial and far bigger, wider,deeper of a wound than the tiny wound I had initially covered. 1/3rd of the bandaid honestly took my skin with it, I had to pry it off and I should have stopped due to the severe pain. needless to say I soaked the other side for a very long time in water and extremely carefully slowly eased it off and it left tons of adhesive residue behind as well. although I much preferred the residue left behind than the skin being pulled/ripped off like the other side did! I am the kind of person who has like maybe once in her life left any bad reviews or complaints about anything I have ever purchased before, but this band aid, the "tough strips" needs a new improved very serious WARNING label on it, to not try to remove them without watersoaking assistance.hoping I can get this wound healed soon...but heed my lesson, this is 5 days later and it is still very severe wound, as severe as a burn patient! i just hope its healed in the next 5 days as it is still very severe. they really need to take these complaints much more serious as somebody is seriously going to be injured by these. they need to stress not removing it til many days later! definitely needs warning labels on this band aid...it is not your everyday bandage ! please change the labeling and add some serious warning labels on these before someone is worse injured! yes, some workers would need these kind for their staying power but they need to come with an extensive warning about early removal!! i am just lucky I have prior knowledge on how to treat burns & always have first aid kit on hand for farm/ranch emergencies or this one would've landed me in the doctors office! I'm tough but this bandaid did some serious damage! do not use on any remotely delicate skin and do not remove too soon after applying it. i think i had the band aid on for one day only, maybe a day and a half.

I LOVE Tough Strips! They stay on forever, even on fingers. I won't use any other bandages, not even other band-aid brand bandages! I always keep them on hand.
