Hydrocolloid technology

Compeed® hydrocolloid technology is an active gel with moisture absorbing particles. Thick cushioning redistributes pressure from the blister to deliver instant pain relief. Compeed® has a tapered edge so it contours smoothly with the skin’s surface. This reduces friction and ensures the healing process is not disrupted by painful rubbing.

Stays in place for several days. Individual experience may vary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Compeed® Blister Cushions better than regular adhesive bandages?

Unlike ordinary bandages, Compeed® Blister Cushions are made using hydrocolloid – a moist wound healing dressing. Our skin is made up of many cells, and has the ability to heal itself. The liquid around a blister or skin wound contains important cells needed for natural wound healing. Allowing blisters or other skin wounds to heal in open air, or covering them with an ordinary bandage dries the wound and a scab forms as the wound liquid dries. This slows down the healing process as the cells needed for wound healing grow more slowly in a dry environment. And, once the scab falls off, a scar can appear. Compeed® Blister Cushions protect and isolate the blister or skin wound, support the natural moisture balance needed for skin repair. Unlike ordinary bandages, Compeed® Blister Cushions stay in place for up to several days, while the blister heals. It is designed to look and fit like a second skin, giving you longer lasting pain relief, protection, and faster healing than ordinary bandages.

Can I use Compeed® Blister Cushions to prevent a blister from forming?

Yes. Compeed® Blister Cushions can be used to help prevent blisters from forming, for example when wearing new shoes, or participating in a sporting activity. They can be applied as soon as the first sensations of rubbing or burning appear. Compeed® Blister Cushions provide a barrier against further rubbing, relieve pain, and prevent the blister from fully developing. They can also be applied to a fully developed blister. Compeed® will provide instant pain relief and long lasting protection while accelerating the natural healing process by helping to maintain the optimal moisture levels of the wound.

Can I use Compeed® Blister Cushions only on heels, or can I use them on other parts of the foot or body?

While the shape of the Small and Medium sized Compeed® Blister Cushions are ideal for blisters on heels, they can also be used on sides or soles of the feet, toes, fingers, palms of hands,  and other parts of the body. They should not be used on areas of fragile skin such as around eyes, face, and genitals. Compeed® Blister Cushions are designed to fit like a second skin. They are made with a polyuerethane film which is flexible, waterproof, and allows the skin to breathe. The tapered shape ensures optimal adherence so the Compeed® Blister Cushion stays in place giving you instant pain relief, long lasting protection, and faster healing.

Are Compeed® Blister Cushions waterproof?

Yes. Compeed® Blister Cushions are made with a polyurethane film. This film provides a protective barrier that insulates the blister/wound from water, bacteria and other impurities and maintains optimal moisture levels to support the natural healing process.

Are Compeed® Blister Cushions sterile?

No. Compeed® Blister Cushions are non-sterile dressings.

Are Compeed® Blister Cushions medicated?

No, there is no ‘active’ or ‘medicinal’ ingredient contained in Compeed® Blister Cushions. However, they are made using hydrocolloid – an active gel that contains particles that absorb excess wound liquid. The dressing swells to form what appears to be a white bubble, creating a shock-absorbent layer which protects the wound from further rubbing. The hydrocolloid in Compeed® Blister Cushions acts as a second skin to maintain the natural moisture levels, allowing fast wound healing with no scab and therefore reducing the risk of scarring.

Are Compeed® Blister Cushions latex-free?

Yes. Compeed® Blister Cushions do not contain latex, and no natural rubber. They are safe to use for people who suffer from allergies, eczema, psoriasis, and warts. However, they should not be used on areas of fragile skin such as around eyes, face, and genitals, or directly on affected areas of skin in the case of psoriasis and eczema. People suffering from diabetes, mycosis or any other infection should not use Compeed® Blister Cushions without seeking medical guidance first.
