Rated 5 out of 5 by Spring Fever Miracle Bandage
Unlike regular band aids where the affected area gets gooey & moist without healing, Advanced Healing forms a natural air bubble that protects & heals in half the time. I 1st used these bandages 1 Summer in Canada. We were camping & I got into poison ivy. I am very sensitive to bug bites & itchy skin-- I used to scratch, get infected, ending up with scabs & scarring. Advanced Healing took away the itch, protected the skin & kept the problem area dry, even while bathing or swimming. Of course, they only work if you leave them on. I'm glad these are available in the USA because I always keep them on hand. Thanks, Band Aids, for this small, affordable miracle !

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sue5 Tried this product and ouch!
I agree they do help protect after one wears ill fitting shoes and gets a blister. I walked 6 miles in them. But when I removed them...ouch! I too took skin off. My heels were very sore and red. I read other reviews and some of us had the same problem. I tried them twice and both times the same result. Now I am having to heal my heels again before I get back to walking. What do you suggest? Are we doing something wrong?

Rated 3 out of 5 Better as a blister preventative
I used this bandage on a blister on my foot from ill fitting shoes. After leaving it on for about a day, I decided to take it off. Along with the band aid, I ripped of a layer of skin and ripped off all the healing the blisters had done. I've done biomedical engineering labs with a grant from a local university on bandages and dressings, and I can say that I'm not impressed. However, It does to a great job of keeping blisters clean, and protecting sensitive areas from developing blisters, as well as staying on really well, if not too well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Charley Never again
I put three of these on my foot blisters midway of a 31 mile hike. When I got home and tried to remove them, it was almost impossible. I tore off my skin in two places, revealing a rosy under layer and causing more pain than anywhere else on my body. My feet were throbbing with pain two nights later. I will not use these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Amanda DO NOT USE!
I wish I could leave a NEGATIVE STAR! Used this on my pinky toe for a blister. It literally made my blister rip open causing a serious raw open gash. Now the pain is so bad it hurts to walk. NEVER EVER will I buy this product again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyz This product is a miracle worker!
The first time i used this product was when my shoes gave me blisters due to partying all night the night before. Tried 1 bandage leave it on for 2-3days or until its ready to come off. I used 2 bandages total and viola..my blister is healed! For those of u saying that it got stuck on yr blister, leave it on until its ready to come off. Its doing its magic. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarahlouzoo Other Uses for the Advanced Healing strips
I suffer from occasional boils on my face that can last for weeks - painful and swollen. I tried an experiment using the Band-aid advanced healing strips for fingers by cutting them into smaller pieces and applying them to the infected areas for 12 hours at night after work. The strips seemed to pull out the infection and healed the boils in a fraction of the time it normally takes. I am very pleased with the results!

Rated 1 out of 5 by QCSINGLE Caused my blister to pop!
I purchased this item to protect my blister from popping. Perhaps, if I left it on, this wouldn't have occurred But, when I tried to take it off, the blister I was trying to protect, stuck to the bandage!
