any tips on how to remove tape from incision

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I just changed my tape for the first time today & it hurt &pulled on my incisions so much. 1 of the incisions is still a little open and tender so I'm looking for tips on how to remove/change the tape in the least painful way possiblie.

I nearly passed out from the pain & the look of the open incision.

Thanks

thanks

When I visited my surgeons office they used vegetable oil on cotton buds, the surgeon told me that this deactivates the stickiness of the tape. You could try that? I haven't had to do mine so cannot personally attest to the success but it worked with ease when the nurse did it for me!
