Just a short email to say thank you. We have just come home from a surf trip in the Landes region. My 14 year old son was able to surf all week without any worries or problems for his wound, and not one drop of water getting into the dressing, and believe me he spent the whole week in the water, rolling around in the waves without any bother to him or the dressing.
After having an infected blister on my heel, my wound was impossible to heal as it was continuously re-infected following every shower due the fact that the dressing was constantly wet despite numerous attempts at protective barriers which became automatically soaked and made worse by the friction of wearing shoes. The infection finally took care of itself simply because I no longer had to change the dressing after showering and therefore the wound was no longer moist and painful when wearing shoes.
It is simply amazing, the waterproof properties of this bandage, and the effect of having a “second skin” covering the wound and minimizing the pain brought by friction.
