    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tegaderm water proof transparent dressing i use this to cover my fentanyl patch (which has to be worn 3 days), this product keeps my medicated patch water proof and also from falling off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well and protects the skin I began using this when a family member scraped a very large area of their knee. I was able to use a non-stick pad and then the Tegaderm over that. The scrape healed without any infection through falls and being in the shower. A wonderful product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff on the market! I try not to run out of this product. I'm allergic to a lot of bandages, but I have the best results with Nexcare, and with Tegaderm in particular. I'm a crafter and artisan, and I'm pretty rough with my hands, and there have been times when I've jabbed sharp needle nose pliers into my index finger. I should have gotten sitches the last time, but i was late on a Sunday night. I washed the wound, wrapped it in a paper owel and held it above my head .First I wrapped it in Nexcare Ster-Strip then gauze and in a piede of Nexcare, then in Tegaderm. I kept it wrapped a few days, and it healed nicely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels good and sticks great I loved the way this dressing feels over the road rash on my knee but, when I looked at it after a few hours, there was liquid built up underneath. The fluid from the wound was in a pool under the bandage and had nowhere to go. This product may be good for some wounds, but, it didn't work well in this stage of my healing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tegaderm is a great product I've used it for years over IV's now I use it weekly to hold my Husbands Dexcom in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticks well. Unobtrusive. The main things I like about these dressings are the waterproof dressing and the fact that they are not so obvious as solid dressings. This is especially good if you want to go swimming, but still need an occlusive dressing.
