    Default Allergy or irritation due to bandaid?

    Ds had a bandaid on for a couple of days which he took off yesterday and underneath the skin looks irritated - red, raw and peeling a bit. He's worn these bandaids many times before but usually not longer than a day or so.

    Has anyone else had this happen? Do you think it's irritation or possibly an allergy to what's in the bandaid?

    Here's a pic. As you can see there's a red rectangle when the bandaid was (not the adhesive part but the pad). This photo was taken over 24 hrs after the bandaid was taken off.

    Some mine have that reaction to plastic ones but not the cloth tougher ones

    Looks like an allergy to me. My mum gets the same problem with Elastoplast.

    Thanks everyone. Looks like it might be an allergy then. 😕 If you don't mind me asking, are they allergic/sensitive to anything else? Just wondering if ds has developed an allergy to bandaids, whether it might cross react with anything else.

    I react to Elastoplast, but DD (aged 6) has never reacted to a bandaid until she refused to let us take it off for 3 days... Then she reacted ... Hasnt since

    Was it a different brand of band aid to normal? Generally it is the adhesive glue that people are allergic to and so sometimes brand related!
