5.0 out of 5 stars A genuine waterproof bandage for small cuts, April 24, 2011
This review is from: New-Skin Liquid Bandage, First Aid Liquid Antiseptic, 1 Ounce Bottle (Health and Beauty)
I have a callus which cracks and bleeds frequently. Keeping it dry long enough to heal is a real challenge. Before this product appeared, basically, I *always* had a small open crack in the callus. Some days I would try and go through 10-20 bandages. Other days, I just blew it off.

Liquid bandage changed all that. Apply some disinfectant, then the liquid bandage and I'm usually healed up in about a day or two.

It's economical too. One bottle has lasted close to five years. I had to toss it because it was turning yellow.

What won't it do?

It's only waterproof. Other liquids like oil, or nail polish remover will strip if off in a hurry.

It peels off easily if you are bending and flexing the wound site. Bending and flexing while the stuff dries will help.

It won't stick to wet wounds. You want to stop the bleeding first!

Thanks for your review and instructions. May I ask, how do you disinfect the wound before applying? Do you use a particular product?
Thank you

most of the time just soap and water. Lather up for 2 minutes at least.

But I also use peroxide, rubbing alcohol, If I'm on the run, I've got argentus biosciences' silver thyme sanitizer gel (Amazon stocks this). It smells nice and moisturizes too.
