Although some diabetics neglect to realize this item because of its simplicity, tape is essential in a healthy wound recovery. Without tape, the dressing would unravel making an open wound vulnerable to its surroundings and allowing the chance of bacteria entering. Our tapes are known for their strength and efficiency and can be placed on flexible sites on the body. All of our tapes are hypoallergenic for diabetics with sensitive skin. Though tapes are durable, they still allow air flow in and out of the wound. All orders over $99 receive FREE shipping. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us toll free at 877-977-7709, we are open Mon-Fri 9-5 EST.
