I had used new skin bandages for my burn and here is a tip: use raw, unfiltered honey beforehand because it will help make the injury not hurt than put the new skin on top of the wound- it will help prevent the sting and help it heal fadter
This works great for elderly people.
My dad is in his 70's. He has very thin skin and seems to always scratch his arms. Either the dog gets him or he just rubs his arm against something and starts to bleed. He tried New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage and it worked for him really well. With the different meds he is on he bleeds a lot and this product really helps. I highly recommend this product. I started using it myself. It is a great product.
A couple of quick sprays gives antiseptic protection that stays.
As the mother of four sons who are extremely active, it seems as if I am constantly treating a wound of some kind. One or another of my sons, or their friends who practically live at our house, get scrapes and cuts from skateboarding, skimboarding, playing sports in our front yard, playing on the slip and slide, wrestling in the living room, climbing trees, and even blisters from playing their drums or their guitars for hours at the time.
I have found that **New-Skin First Aid Antiseptic Liquid Bandage Spray for Larger Areas** works wonderfully for treating and covering the larger cuts and scrapes that I so often see on 'my boys'.
This liquid bandage spray is very easy to use. After cleaning the affected area, I spray it a couple of times with the liquid bandage, and the antiseptic it contains keeps the wound from becoming infected and it doesn't come off until you take it off. I have yet to find a regular bandage (such as Bandaids) that can withstand the rigorous activities my sons participate in, and almost all 'stick on' bandages fall off when they get wet. That's not a problem with **New-Skin First Aid Antiseptic Liquid Bandage Spray for Larger Areas.** I spray the affected area with this product, it dries, and it continues to protect wounds from becoming infected until I remove the coating. It does sting for a few seconds when it's first applied, but it isn't a terrible sting, and it's benefits far outweigh the small amount of discomfort you experience with the first spray on an open wound.

This product is one that I would definately recommend for older people and adults to use, especially in areas where you can not use a bandage, like the palms of your hands, bottoms of feet or behind bending places. It stops the bleeding and helps aid in healing by offering a fair amount of protection.
It does hurt when you apply it and so I do not so much recommend for using on children, especially younger children.
It is definately worth having on hand for older people, it is definately worth using. I would recommend this product for consistant high quality and depenability for use on older people. It does work and it works quite well and quickly. It is easy to use and stores for long periods of time. Definately something to add to your first aid kits.
It is also great for elderly people who may have thin skin and get tears on the skin, I keep this product so it is available for my mother when she comes by and it works well.
Loving this product!!
I am a Licensed/Certified Massage Therapist. I work on a lot of people every week. I have to count on myself to keep my hands healthy and functionable, since they're the main thing I use for my job! I don't know how I do it, but I tend to get little paper cuts, or just random accidental cuts on my hands at times. I really hate when the cuts are on the palm sides of my hands, since that is the area I use most when I am working. One of my massage instructors from my school had told me a few years ago about the New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage product, and said he had been using it for years and loved how it worked. I decided to try it, and loved it as well! I don't like the feeling of wearing a bandaid when working on clients, because it feels awkward to me, and I'm sure if I notice how it feels, it probably feels awkward to my clients as well. Using the liquid bandaid product, my skin feels smooth and protected, to me. It would last me through an hour massage and then would have to be reapplied. I was just happy to know it would last that long and keep my skin smooth, as well as my wounds sealed and protected. The only downfall is that it can sting at times when applied.
New Skin Liquid Bandage
What a great product. I discovered New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage a few years ago, on the recommendation of a friend. She told me she used it, with good success and I should try it. I followed her advice and was pleased with the results. It goes on easily and stays in place for days..You can wash the area...like your hands, repeatedly without having to reapply the New Skin. I have had great success with this product. I would not recommend using it on a child, as it burns a bit when you first apply it...the stinging doesn't last long, but would cause great distress in a child. I find this product most useful on my hands, haven't applied it anywhere else, actually. But for the hands and fingers, especially... its great because it does not restrict your movements the way an ordinary bandage does...no stiff fingers.....I like the ability to apply it on the cuticle, where a standard bandage would interfere with the use of my finger.All in all this is a very useful product.

This new Skin Liquid Bandage is a very unique product and would be great for any first aid kit or even any busy mom! I bought this product when I worked as a manager at a fast food restaurant because wearing a bandaid was just tacky when wearing a plastic glove. I had a not too serious cut on my finger that did not require stitches but did require something to cover it because it irritated. You clean your cut as you normally would you dry your finger or affected area completely or the New Skin doesnt work effectively you rub the product on your finger let it dry then resume to your duties. It does keep out the dirt and grime and it does keep out the water to a point. You do have to reapply as needed but it takes away from the germy band aids that fall off and never get found again its more sanitary and I think it aided in the healing because you didnt have to cover the whole finger. It does cost a little but it is worth the money.
New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage--Works Well but stinks!
I started using the New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage when all the other Bandages were getting wet and slipping off my cut finger. This liquid bandage does a good job sealing in your wound/cut from further infection. It burns when you initally apply it, but a couple of seconds later, the burning subsides. Its not to bad. It is relatively easy to use. You use it just like fingernail polish. You brush it over the top of your wound and it eventually dries over like a layer of clear nail polish. I normally let the first layer completely dry and then reapply an additional layer. I go swimming a lot, and the liquid bandage works for me way better than the regular bandages. I don't have to worry about infection with the liquid bandage, whereas with the regular bandages, bacteria can seep into the bandage into my wound. If you can get past the initally stinky smell, then the New Skin Antiseptic Liquid Bandage can really work for you. Ohh forgot--use it sparingly, cause its expensive!
It may sting a little bit when you put it on but it really works. You can use it on any cut, well one that you wouldn't need stitches for. It will stay on until you peel it off. It's really easy to get off as well, not painful like a band-aid. You'll be trading the sting from pulling off the band-aid to the sting of putting it on. And it's waterproof.
New skin is a staple at our house
New skin is the best! I actually just applied some a minute ago to myself for a cut I sustained while making jewelry. I have two rough and tumble boys under the age of five years (and another boy on the way) so New Skin is something I always keep on hand. It does sting when it goes on! But the protection it provides is SO worth it. New skin is more waterproof than a bandage that soaks up the water and holds it against the wound, potentially introducing infection and you don't have the hassle of changing the bandages because it wears off on its own and if you need a to reapply it there is no "ripping off" to go through! I especially love it for facial cuts because once it's dry it's so much easier for the child not to touch it and mess with it (introducing more germs, of course). My boys also like to "watch it heal". That is, over the course of time it takes the wound to heal, they can see the changes from day to day.
