A bandage is a medical dressing that is applied on top of a wound to protect it from infection, stop bleeding, or help it heal.

Bandages are available in many sizes, shapes, and materials. They are often made of cotton or some other absorbent material, but can also be synthetic, plastic, or metal. The most common type is the adhesive bandage made of latex rubber.

Use of Bandages

Bandages are used to protect and cover wounds or sores to prevent infection and safeguard against further damage. They may be adhesive, elastic, or non-adhesive.

Bandages are most often used to cover wounds, but they also come in handy for other needs.

An average bandage is about two inches wide and 16 inches long. They are made of gauze or cotton with a sticky material on the underside that adheres to the skin, forming a seal between the wound or sore and the bandage.
