    Nexcare™ Gentle Paper First Aid Tape is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leave you Skin Behind Like many people, my skin reacts to adhesives found in many bandages and first aid tapes. Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape reliably adheres to the skin easily, removes easily, and causes little to no irritation. The handy dispenser makes it easy to measure the exact length of tape needed and tears easily. As a nurse, it is the first tape I reach for if my patients do not mention a tape sensitivity. When skin integrity can be maintained be something as easy as choosing the right tape, the decision is a no brainer! I know my patients and their sensitive skin appreciate it just as much as I do!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best on the market for sensitive skin that actually stays in place. My ill mother had wounds that constantly needed tending with coverage that would stay in place for protection. Her skin was very sensitive and sometimes rather dry due to her condition/medications which often made getting her wound coverage to stay as applied difficult. We tried all varieties of tape but the Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape was the tape that got the job done. It actually stayed in place once applied rather then coming off almost imediately like others. You wouldn't think something labeled gentle or so thin looking would come through, but in this case appearances were deceiving. Thank You Nexcare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used this product for over 25 years I have used Nexcare paper tape for over 25 years. Unfortunately I had to have an ostomy way back then. This is the product the nurse had me start using for my appliance and I have used it ever since. The tape tears easily off the roll. Has unbelievable sticking power. It has stayed attached to my body through days of showering and physical work. I have never had a bad reaction to the tape. Whenever my husband needs a fix on his skin I tell him to use this tape because of it's durability. I have seen it used in hospitals often. There is just not one negative thing I could think of to say. It's become a part of my body actually:) Would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great! note you cannot buy the tape separate You would thing that if you buy just the 2 rolls of gentle paper, they would fit in this product. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT IS NOT THE CASE!. The product is GREAT, but why would they sell 2 replacement rolls that DON'T fit in the dispenser. You have to throw the dispenser away! What a waste!! Nexcare, I am not saying you shouldn't have the 2 rolls that you sell, but you should also have the ones that you can add to the dispenser.... BTW, they fit regular tape perfectly well, but NOT their own product....That is the reason I gave them 3 stars, not good for the environment to throw away perfectly good dispensers....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tape is the best I've ever found! My right foot was defective at birth and was the subject of 12 operations in my first 18 months of life. The skin is now pretty much all scar tissue and, after 74 years, very fragile and subject to punctures and abrasions. These wounds require salves covered with gauze pads but tapes I would use frequently caused new problems. However, Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape has never caused a problem nor allowed the gauze pad to move from where it was placed. I will never consider any other product for this application!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Old Friend! I have been using 3M Micropore paper tape (now branded as Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape) to support my ostomy mounting ring 24/7/365 for over 45 years. There have been a few occasions when I was in an area where Micropore tape wasn't available and I had to purchase another brand and dealt with a less comfortable, less reliable product, but as soon as I possibly could, I switched back! Micropore tape is much more flexible, cooler, kinder to my skin and more dependable. I buy it in boxes of six 2" rolls and restock when I get down to two rolls so that I always have a "cushion"!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nexcare Paper Tape is truly gentle We needed to use a paper tape on my son this past year. He had to have vinegar treatments put on the bottom of his foot each night. We would soak a cotton square in vinegar, place it on the area, then put another dry cotton square over it, and tape it on with Nexcare tape. The tape stayed on all night until morning. He could then pull it off without any discomfort himself in the morning. This treatment was able to eventually get rid of a wart he had without any surgery, or pain! . The tape tears easily by hand when I prepare each piece, and it is not irritating to the skin. I use it instead of adhesive bandages because I am sensitive to many adhesives. I am so glad that the pharmacies near us carry Nexcare products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids are Tough, Nexcare is Tougher! My 2 year old son injured his finger which we bandaged with Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape. After playing all day long, we removed his bandage and his wound was completely clean. And as an added bonus, removing the bandage was completely painless! Thank you Nexcare for helping us take care of our toddler!
