Other Tegaderm product(s)
3M Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing absorbs exudation rapidly. They offer multiple shapes such as oval, square, thin and sacral dressings to better match wound size and wound location. Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing maintains an optimal moist wound environment which has been shown to enhance healing of partial- and full-thickness dermal ulcers, superficial wounds and abrasions and superficial and partial-thickness burns and donor sites. They have a significantly high absorbency in the first 48 hours with a breathable outer film layer which provides consistently high rate of moisture vapor transmission. Water-resistant film border adheres firmly and outer film barrier protects wound and surrounding skin from contaminants, body fluids, bacteria and viruses. Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressings provide excellent patient comfort, dressing adherence and wound management. The flexible, conformable, low-profile, hydrocolloid tegerderm dressings are comfortable because there is less bulk to catch on bed linens. With film dressing border, there is less likelihood of edge lift. Water resistance allows the patient to shower or to have a bed bath.

Bandage adheres well, stays on in shower and is transparent so you can monitor the wound.
I would love to find some smaller bandages to use on smaller wounds.
