Contains premium hydrogel to help provide comfort and reduce further damage caused by minor burns. In testing, Soothe & Cool Gel proved superior to competitive hydrogels, reducing skin temperature by 4.9°F in 20 seconds. Provides lasting cooling and cushioning, also absorbs or provides moisture as needed to help create an optimal healing environment. Flexible outer layer keeps water out, while the advanced adhesive lasts up to 5 days to help seal out dirt and germs. Any oily, greasy substance like butter is more likely to hold in heat than reduce it. The skin is already damaged, so placing freezing cold ice directly on a burn can cause further damage. It can be used wrapped in a clean cloth. However, when dealing with burns, use of ice or cold packs may cause shock. Blisters work like a natural bandage to keep out germs. If one does pop, keep it covered and use an antibacterial or antimicrobial ointment to help prevent infection. The faster you cool off burns, the less damage they may cause. Soothe & Cool burn bandages have a hydrogel (water & glycerol gel) wound pad which instantly cools burns to help relieve pain. Waterproof and designed to cover the wound for up to 5 days, the pad also donates moisture to the wound as needed to help create an ideal healing environment. These bandages can also be used to help soothe, cushion and prevent blisters, as well as treat minor cuts, scrapes and abrasions.
