    I have been using this tape for cover and dressing an abcess drain since May of 2015. At first i was using standard medical tape. The twice daily changes were causing painful skin damage. I knew the drain would be in for an extended period of time and new my strong youthful skin would not hold up to the changes. So I sought the advice of my mom who is a wound care specialist. She advised getting Medipore tape. This stuff is the best stuff imaginable. I have been using a 6" wide roll that has 1.5" perforation strips. This allows me tho tear off one large section of tape (3 sections) to completly cover the 4" gauze pads I use. The application is super easy. But best of all removal is painless. After 5.5 months of twice daily changes there is zero degredation to my skin integrity. Amazingly, this adhesive property of this tape is superior to any of the other surgical tape I have used.

    This is my personal testimony. I recommend it in everyones medical bag and to have on hand in your medicine cabinet.

    The link is to a supplier I found on line. I did not reference/compare pricing to other sites. I just provide a link to what the product is with a site that had some other user reviews. DYODD with pricing.

    I use their "cheaper" product Coban, I think they are similar.

    The coban stuff is not the same. It is a wrap as opposed to tape and functions by adhering to itself as opposed to skin site. It would work well on a limb where you can wrap around and arm or leg, but in the case of my drain on my right butt check it is impractical to find a wrap to secure that area. Similar problems in the chest, back or abdomen.

    Both are great products. Rusty, thanks for taking the time to post about the wide width availability. I hope you heal quickly so this "situation" doesn't slow up your ability to go hunting.

    Oh, man, get some colloidal silver on that abscess. I've used it on the biggest, ugliest sores you can imagine, on man and beast and watched it work miracles on both.
