Tape Relief was designed for people with a bandage adhesive allergy and to provide a macerated skin treatment. Its unique formula helps protect vulnerable skin from what’s known as allergic contact dermatitis, a common allergy to bandage adhesive that causes such symptoms as rashes, swelling, itching, and irritation.
However, that’s not the only allergic reaction to bandage adhesive conditions that Tape Relief can help. It also treat irritant contact dermatitis and immediate allergic reactions.
A skin rash will occur in about 50% of people when their skin is in contact with adhesives for prolonged periods of time. Though this often happens after a person receives medical attention, it’s not the only way. Here are three other examples of possible scenarios when you might need the protecting and alleviating benefits of Tape Relief.
- Latex: Bandage adhesive is the most common cause of contact dermatitis rashes, but latex can trigger them, too, according to the National Institute of Health. Even if you don’t have a latex allergy, it can still rub against the skin, causing moisture to accumulate from sweat, which in turn causes a rash. To prevent this from happening, apply Tape Relief before dealing with latex.
- Wearable Devices: Apple Watches and other wearable devices can cause irritation from constant contact with the skin. If this has happened to you, try putting a dab of Tape Relief on your wrist before putting your wearable device on.
- New Tattoo Care: Tattoo artists often tell clients not to cover their new ink with adhesive bandages. Though it may seem like a good idea, it can cause irritation and rashes. Apply Tape Relief to the area surrounding a new tattoo, and cover it with a bandage or some kind of cloth.
Tape Relief was made to help people deal with an allergic reaction to bandage adhesive, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing it can be used for. Try it in these other areas and save yourself the irritation.
