Customer Reviews
Nexcare™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Dressing is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9694.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as I expected I had CTS surgery done in the palm of my hand. I was instructed the keep the dressing on my stitches for 2 weeks till I have them removed. The dressing from the surgery fell off on the 3rd day. I googled a similar product and found this one. I bought an 8 pack. First night I put on before bed and it was peeling off by morning. I properly cleansed the area with antibacterial soap from the pre surgery steps and cleaned the area with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any other residue. I then put another one on and got in shower. It didn't even make it through the shower. I put a 3rd one on within a 24hrs span. This time I clean the area with iodine. By the end of my 8 hour shift at work that day, the 3rd one had peeling back to the stitches on my hand. In 2 days I have used 7. This is crazy when the are just about $1.56 per Tegaderm patch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had some issues I had bicep surgery and the bandage from the hospital started coming off. My son in law told me about this so I gave it a try. I used it to cover the stitches and it started to come off the next day. I put another on on and the same thing happened. I don’t know if it’s the area where it’s applied or the dressing itself. Needless to say, I bought a 4 pack and I’m down to 1. Looks like I’ll have to buy more because I have another week and a half with these stitches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend! After wrestling for a couple weeks treating and bandaging blisters that didn’t get any better, I tried Teagaderm. The next day my blisters were all completely healed. Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays on even when wet I have bought this bandage a couple of times as I like the way the bandage remains in place even in the shower or washing my hands. I like the transparent backing as it makes the bandage less noticeable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult for one person to put on burn My daughter got this for me. I tried doing this alone for the wound is on the underside of my right arm and I am right-handed. It is difficult to get this on that part of arm without messing up the dressing. Have used two of them so far and last one I got on but it is not correctly placed. It will do till I can get help putting this on. So for myself this will not word on my burn. I will ask her to go to drugstore and get me somthing easier to apply for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NEXCARE TEGADERM AND TEGADERM + PAD Review I received a sample of NEXCARE TEGADERM AND TEGADERM + PAD WATERPROOF TRANSPARENT DRESSINGS from PINCHMe to try. This dressing works better than others I have tried when it comes to staying in place and easy to remove.
