Does Buying Bandages For Wounds Require A Doctor’s Prescription?
What brand of press bandages to reduce scars? How much is the price? Is a doctor’s prescription needed? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bandages can generally be bought without a doctor's prescription. But the main function of the bandage is to help the wound heal quickly, not to remove scars.
So in your case, we think you need to make sure again where you heard the information to avoid misunderstanding. Bandages have been made so far to keep wounds protected from dirt, dust, sand and bacterial infections. The bandage also keeps the medication that is applied or sprinkled on the wound from sticking to clothes. Some bandages have antiseptic properties to further avoid injury from infection, and there is gauze that has indeed been covered in antibiotics for the same reason. But again, this is only to speed up and protect the body during the wound healing process, not to remove scars from wounds that have occurred in the area.
Therefore, if your focus is to get rid of scars, we suggest that you check with your dermatologist or beauty clinic to choose the treatment that is right for you. You may be given a cream, gel, or certain actions such as laser therapy, dermabrasion or microdermabrasion to help remove scars. In the meantime, you can also try applying a cream containing vitamin E to the wound to further help restore the skin. So, hopefully answering your question.
