We all have the same goal when it comes to treating cuts and scrapes which is to help heal wounds faster and reduce the risk of scarring. Yet many of us don’t take the best care of our cuts and scrapes simply because we don’t know how to care for our wounds in the proper way and not taking proper care of your wound can delay the healing process. We rely on what our elders have taught us or what we have heard. But with today’s treatment options, we all have the power to help wounds heal faster, we just need to know the wound healing stages and the right action steps.


To protect larger wounds you require something bigger and better. Hence, Hansaplast has sterile XL and XXL plasters especially for the larger wounds. The range of XL plasters is used to prevent any specific infection, sensitive skin or water for your wound.


Scientifically, it is believed that leaving a wound to heal in dry air may actually prolong and irritate the healing process. Larger wounds are best protected with sterile dressings which cushion the wound. The better you protect your wound, the fewer chances of infection risk and optimal healing environment. 


The main objective of wound care is to ensure the best conditions for an undisturbed and optimal healing process without complications such as infections. Wound care experts have succeeded in reducing the risk of infection with antibacterial silver. Silver is effective on a broad range of germs, even in low concentration.

  1. Reduced risk of infection

However, covering a medium to large wound can be a challenge for people who have sensitive skin or after minor surgery. To treat such skin types, Hansaplast offers sensitive XL and XXL plasters to address their needs. These plasters are skin-friendly with a soft and breathable material. The secure adhesion ensures that the plasters stay in place, while at the same time it is painless to remove. 


Apart from wound plasters, you also need to take special care of your wounds. For example, avoid exposure to water, pollution, or even touching the wound area. 


Always see a doctor if the wound is deep, bleeds heavily or shows signs of infection like reddening, swelling or warmth.
