When it comes to the period that you spend recovering from lymphedema it is important that you look into every detail of your recovery and make the effort to provide yourself with the best materials that will help you get your life back to normal as soon as possible. When it comes to taking care of every single detail of the healing process it can be important to look into the specific type of bandage which you want to use for the areas that were affected by the condition.
Choosing to use a cohesive bandage can be one way to simplify the healing process and make sure that your recovery goes smoothly. A cohesive bandage is one which will stick to itself when the material touches itself. This is a great choice for anything that you need to wrap around one of your body parts. In particular this can be useful for arms, legs, feet, and hands. It is capable of providing a wrap almost anywhere on your body but it will require much more material to go all the way around your torso or upper leg.
The difference between a cohesive bandage and an adhesive bandage is that the cohesive one will stick to itself while the adhesive will stick to other materials such as the skin. For those with sensitive skin it can be best to choose a cohesive version of the wrap so that you will not have to worry about any interaction with the skin or have to take additional precautions to protect the skin from any sort of unwanted contact which can cause adverse reactions. Adhesive bandages however can be useful when trying to cover small spaces that do not require a full wrap.
The other benefit of using a cohesive bandage is that it is easier to apply and reapply. When people use adhesive bandages they can often come loose and cause problems when there is no replacement available. A cohesive version will offer fewer of those types of problems while in use. If for some reason it does come loose or need to be readjusted at some point it is very easy to simply rewrap it and stick it to another piece of the material to make sure that it will remain in place for as long as necessary.
