question

Are there non-latex band-aids? 'Cause we have baaaad reactions to band-aids (various brands) over here. I'm guessing it's the latex...

There are definately non-latex band-aids. I am allergic to latex and unfortunaley have scars to prove it. I would be happy to send some to you. Is your current post still listed here?

Yep; my daughter Lydia has the same issue...we look for the woven cloth ones.

Could be the adhesive too! I get 1/2" high rashes from adhesives. There is a product called SkinPrep in australia that keeps the adhesive from contacting the immune system but still adheses....magic. Dunno if it exists in Russia though :(

I'm guessing you're right--that it's the adhesive--after reading the comments. We've used those woven cloth ones, too...with horrible results.

I guess we need a trip down under. ;>
