If you or a loved one has a medical need for this product you know how when used that this stuff works.

The alcohol also makes it sting for a couple of seconds when you swab it on a wound.

The trouble with any kind of adhesive bandage is they don't always stick, even after you clean the area. After you do the best you can, take one of these PDI Compound Tincture of Benzoin "swabstick" (big Q-tip) and apply to the area where the adhesive will be and this will aid said adhesive to bond to the skin. The PDI Compound Tincture of Benzoin is a "MUST" when useing "Steri-Strips".Compound Benzoin Tincture U.S.P. Swabsticks - - Box of 50

These individually packaged items work great... Their major problem is the foil packaging. It can puncture or tear easily and leak adhesive... Keep these things sealed and separated from other items in your rig.

Compound Tincture of Benzoin is very useful for gardeners and cooks like me, who always get cuts from slipping saws and knives. The stickiness can hold the wound together and also keep the dressing or Steri-Strips from peeling off. The tincture of Benzoin is a solution in alcohol (77%) and acts as a local antiseptic. The alcohol also makes it sting for a couple of seconds when you swab it on a wound.

Remember that tincture of benzoin is a resin from the Styrax tree. If you drip it on a floor or counter, it adheres like a lacquer. After trying to scrub it off, I used a putty knife to scrape it off with success. This is wonderful stuff, just use it carefully.

I purchased this product primarily to improve the adherence of dressings and tape to the body. It works really great, but... WATCH OUT where you use it. Product was used on the heel of a foot to protect the removal site of a huge callous. The dressings were continually coming off due to the moisture inside the shoe and the movement of the foot. After prepping the site, the dressing and tape were so securely attached that I actually tore the skin trying to remove it. BE gentle.

I used this product before my micro-pore toe taping. Held tape securely in position. Then I would dip the swabstick in the 1 oz bottle for complete coverage. Good for placement inbetween toes as well. Followed by Hike Goo for blister prevention. Good for travel and stick good for coverage without touching the liquid. My 4 star vs 5 star was due to needing more liquid for complete coverage for my feet. Used one stick per foot per day.

I keep some of these in my first-aid kit (I am very accident prone). Just recently I cut myself very badly on a piece of sheet metal while assembling a toolbox. I figured I could either try and close it up myself, or head over to the ER for a couple stitches. I decided to save the $250 co-pay and used Steri-Strips in conjunction with Tincture of Benzoin. Despite being on a finger that was not immobilized, the Steri-Strips did a fine job of holding the wound closed until it healed enough to use a regular bandage on it. They worked exactly the same as they did when I've had them applied to me to close surgical wounds in the hospital.

In conjunction with Steri-Strips this is a great product and worked exactly how I expected it to.

Some things to keep in mind:

As others have mentioned, it will stain anything it touches iodine-red
It has a strong odor (although I really like the smell)
Steri-Strips are not waterproof

Recieved in a box, a little crushed from delivery but still in working condition! I took them out of the box and put them in a ziplock bag, pushed all the air out and now they don't take up half as much room as the box in my first aid kit! Come connected in 4's, each with it's own tear away watertight pouch! Ready to go! Thanks Amazon for another great buying experience!!!
