Wearing a band aid is pretty much a major drag. The adhesive attracts ick around the edges, not to mention the bandage is usually hiding a pretty nasty scratch or scrape for which you have received much too little sympathy. Attempts to match various skin tones have helped the problem of unsightly bandages, but they still leave much to be desired. So, why not take full advantage of your next injury and have a little fun?
As a nurse practitioner, I have a massive store of first aid supplies on hand in my home, bandages of all sizes included. My band aid picks tend to be pretty standard. Fortunately, a few innovative companies have come up with some lighthearted designs when it comes to bandage decor. Spice up your first aid kit with these amusing options.
