I have used this product twice. The first time was after surgery to remove a plate in my leg. A few days after surgery, the 8" long incision was surrounded by small red bumps that turned into small blisters. The surgeon did not know what was causing it, but treated me for an infection. Once that had run its course I began getting the small, itchy blister patches all over my body, continui ... Show Full Comment

I have never had such a severe reaction to steri-strips or medications before. The surgeon told me to never allow it to be used on me in the future.
