    Nexcare™ Gentle Paper First Aid Tape, 789, Dispenser , 3/4 in x 8 yd is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great! note you cannot buy the tape separate You would thing that if you buy just the 2 rolls of gentle paper, they would fit in this product. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT IS NOT THE CASE!. The product is GREAT, but why would they sell 2 replacement rolls that DON'T fit in the dispenser. You have to throw the dispenser away! What a waste!! Nexcare, I am not saying you shouldn't have the 2 rolls that you sell, but you should also have the ones that you can add to the dispenser.... BTW, they fit regular tape perfectly well, but NOT their own product....That is the reason I gave them 3 stars, not good for the environment to throw away perfectly good dispensers....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Long Term Use I've been using this on my foot where I have a slow-to-heal wound (10+ weeks). This tape has allowed me to re-tape in the same place dozens of times without tearing the skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and stays on! I use this every other day to secure a pyhentenol patch to my left side and it works great even in the shower.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GENTLE TO THE SKIN!!! I found this tape to be extremely gentle to the skin, and the best tape to use when moisture in not an issue. No skin irritation, and it holds in place. I keep the paper tape, the cloth tape and clear tape on hand at all times. Each tape works well, depending on the application - so they always come in handy. Nexcare tapes are the best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need Gentle Tape in TAN! This is a great product for people with very thin skin (like aged people). Unfortunately, they don't seem to be making this product in a tan color any more. Now my mother, who frequently has skin cancers removed from her face, has to use white tape on the bandages in the most observed place. What happened to tan?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, but gentle I learned that I could have some control when I went to have my blood tests by taking along my OWN tape to secure the cotton ball they invariably place after removing the needle. Usually, the tape they place on my arm is more painful to remove than the actual blood test. Not any more. Nexcare sensitive skin tape has saved the day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Old Friend! I have been using 3M Micropore paper tape (now branded as Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape) to support my ostomy mounting ring 24/7/365 for over 45 years. There have been a few occasions when I was in an area where Micropore tape wasn't available and I had to purchase another brand and dealt with a less comfortable, less reliable product, but as soon as I possibly could, I switched back! Micropore tape is much more flexible, cooler, kinder to my skin and more dependable. I buy it in boxes of six 2" rolls and restock when I get down to two rolls so that I always have a "cushion"!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for very fragile skin! I have a chronic skin condition on both lower legs that requires my caregiver to apply a prescriptive cream every day. I can also retain excess fluid in those lower legs & feet. To control fluid retention I have to wear elastic bandage wrap on my feet & legs. But my skin is so fragile, my PCP won't let the elastic bandage wrap touch my skin. My caregiver applies the cream where needed. Wraps my feet & lower legs with wide stretch rolled gauze held in place with the Nexcare Micropore paper tape. Then she can apply my elastic bandage wraps over the wrapped gauze. And holds the elastic bandage wrap in place with more Micropore paper tape. The tape stays in place until she removes those elastic wraps at the end of the day. Every morning she takes the stretch gauze off to reapply the prescriptive cream. Then rewraps with the stretch gauze & elastic bandage wraps using fresh Micropore paper tape. Every 3 days she'll apply a fresh roll of stretch gauze. And every month we'll start a fresh roll of wide elastic bandage wrap. But the one constant in all of this is the Micropore paper tape. it works the best of any paper tape I've had to use!
