Children discover the world by touching and feeling it, climbing and playing around. Getting cut or scraped is often the result of their mischievous adventures, but don't let that be reason for hesitation! With Hansaplast Bacteria Shield plasters, your little ones can safely keep exploring without any cause for worry. Well protected wounds allow you to go about your daily life stress-free, knowing that your kid’s little scratches are well taken care of and protected.

Modern scientific research versus conventional wisdom

According to traditional wisdom handed down through the ages, it's best to leave wounds open so that they can 'breathe' and 'heal naturally'. Scientific research, however, has demonstrated the opposite: covering up wounds and using proper wound care procedures is essential. Dirt and bacteria can easily enter into the body through broken skin, which can lead to infection. When infections spread to other parts of the body, it can cause serious health issues.


The pain associated with infections can delay the healing process and become a source of irritation. An infection may require antibiotics if it becomes serious - so if you feel like your wound is infected, do not wait and see your doctor immediately.

What makes Hansaplast Bacteria Shield plasters so effective?

By forming a protective barrier, Hansaplast Bacteria Shield plasters prevent bacteria from coming into contact with the wound. Additionally, they possess the following advantageous features:
  1. Bandage with specially designed backing

    Bacteria cannot penetrate special backing of the plaster. Hansaplast Bacteria Shield plasters reduce the risk of infection by effectively blocking dirt and bacteria, thus enabling rapid, natural healing.
  2. Rich in antiseptic properties

    These antiseptic plasters from Hansaplast actively protect wounds against infection. By doing so, your body's natural healing mechanisms are unhindered by external factors such as water, germs, or bacteria.
  3. Long lasting Adhesion

    Protection is prolonged with strong adhesion. You can go through your routine uninterrupted and worry-free with this dependable plaster.
  4. Made with breathable Fabric

    Breathable materials help the wound to drain moisture, which is important for the healing process.

Small cuts and grazes often heal on their own, but there is always the risk of infection. Infection can cause redness, swelling, pus, and more serious health problems if it spreads. With Hansaplast Bacteria Shield plasters, wound care is simple and effective, helping to prevent infection and promoting the body's own healing mechanisms. So the next time you injure yourself, you know what to reach for.
