MY TROUBLE WITH SELF ADHESIVE. All and all I think Ace is an excellent product, so this may be my problem and not the product. Using the bandage for my ankle gives me great support , but the only problem is .......when washing it. I seem to have more or less ruined the adhesive part and it does not stick like it should. I can not see not washing it, because it is used on my foot and gets dirty. It just seems like the adhesive does not hold up very long. Is this my problem, or does anyone else have this happen to them too? I am now going back to the closure type because my luck has ran out on adhesive.
Relief just a wrap away. I recently had a scare that my new Ace Self-Adhesive bandage helped me get through. I am on Warfarin for a blood clotting issue, and noticed that I had quite a bit of swelling in the same ankle the clot was first discovered two years ago. A trip to the ER revealed it was only water retention, but the retention was so bad that the swelling was affecting my ability to walk. Following doctor's orders, I placed a towel wrapped ice pack against the swollen area, and gently secured it in place with the Ace Self-Adhesive bandage. After 20 minutes, I was able to remove the undamaged ice pack, wait and replace it as directed until the swelling was abated. The bandage was so effective that I have replaced all the regular Ace bandages in my home with the Ace Self-Adhesive bandages. They work great for my emergency kit in the car, as well as around the house.
Ace all the way baby! I simply must say how much I love the self adhesive bandages. I have very active teens (more than the usual) and they are always hurting something. These bandages can go where they go and not come loose or fall off. I love them and they are all I buy anymore. I do think rolling them back up is sort of a pain because it sticks to itself but it's a small price to pay for all that they do.
