Are Band-Aids good or bad?

I always thought they were good, but than I heard that they aren't because they keep the wound from breathing....so which is it?

  • It keeps the wound from gettin dirty and helps heal ... and as long you dont keep it on for long .. so i think they are good. It always helps my kids get heal up faster, and i always take it off at end day and put new one on of course after cleaning the wound.

  • Well, if the wound is bleeding, of course you should bandage it. I usually leave one on, then when it quits bleeding I take it off.

  • depends on the band aid. I am allergic to the glue they use in the latex free band aids

  • Better to cover up a wound to keep out germs. And along with Neosporin, the cut will heal faster. Moist heals better than dry.

  • I always feel like it's letting the skin breathe. Band-Aids are impossible to live without for me. I have a hard time not scratching things if I can see them so I have to cover up scabs until they're gone.
