If you are using ordinary bandages, they need to be changed when they are visibly soiled with blister fluids, dirt or water from the environment (e.g. showering, rain, etc). Depending on many factors, you may need to change your bandage anywhere between every hour to once a day. On the other hand, hydrocolloid blister bandages such as those of the COMPEED® Advanced Blister Care range are waterproof, sweat-proof, stay in place for several days and heal faster.
For deroofed blisters, specialist blister cushions like COMPEED® only need to be changed when it starts to peel off, or when the white bubble formed by the blister fluids underneath the dressing reaches the edge of the cushion. It is perfectly fine to leave a hydrocolloid bandage on for several days. For intact (unbroken skin) blisters, COMPEED® stays in place until the cushion edges start to lift, and up to several days. Do not be tempted to remove them earlier to allow the blister time to heal.
