The reusable bandage, ReSkin from Bescot Healthcare Canada, is now available in Rexall PharmaPlus stores across Canada. ReSkin has been predominately used by distance runners since its launch to avoid not only friction in their shoes but from chafing arm bands for mp3 devices, insulin pump belts and even sports bra straps and hooks. Many male runners frequently use them as “nipple guards” to prevent even more painful friction from damp running shirts.
A special Lycra weave material paired with a soft silicone-based adhesive makes ReSkin helpful to anyone experiencing friction whether it is from athletic shoes, new work shoes or “fashionable” high heels. The product acts as a secondary protective skin, making it comfortable for everyday use.
The versatile bandage is:
- cuttable (for use around toes for example),
- flexible (moves no matter how your skin moves),
- washable (allowing reuse) and, despite its ability to stick anywhere,
- pain-free removal (ideal for kids).
ReSkin bandages are effective on blisters that have already started to develop - helping to prevent them from getting worse, or blisters which are already in the healing process and need protection. They can also protect minor cuts from friction which may impede healing.
ReSkin may prove helpful for those with thin skin, such as the elderly, or for those with diabetes who need specific care for their feet, particularly if their feet have bony protrusions which can be prone to dangerous blistering and chafing.
ReSkin bandages are available for distribution across North America through http://www.ReSkin.ca.
