New Skin Liquid Bandage - Gluten?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if the New Skin Brand Liquid Bandage is gluten free? Their website has a FAQ about their Scar Therapy product and says that is gluten free, but says nothing about the Liquid Bandage. I've tried the "Contact Us" form, but no word back yet.

Reason I need it -- cut my thumb yesterday assembling my gift for my husband. Then, I stupidly washed the chicken for dinner without gloves. Madly washed said still open cut with soap and water afterward and disinfected and then asked an online doctor my chances of contracting salmonella this way in order to lower my panic factor (chances are low, so I've decided to believe I got lucky this time and resolve to wear gloves next time ;)). Anyhow, don't want to get anything ELSE in this cut, but I don't want to gluten myself either! (Still recovering from being dumb enough to go along on the trip to Whole Foods last week...where they actually keep the gluten free products on a shelf RIGHT NEXT TO THE LEAKY WHEAT FLOUR SACKS...D'OH!)

Thanks, guys!

And Happy Holidays all around!:)

I don't know if New Skin is safe or not, but until you hear more (let us know, too), I'd get out the hydrogen peroxide to thoroughly cleanse your wound to prevent infection and then use a Band Aid.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I've been doing. Used a couple of kinds of disinfectants, and I DID have a band-aid on while washing the chicken, but the washing knocked it loose. I go through SO many band-aids what with washing my hands so many times a day!

But, yes, good advice (and I'll definitely let you all know when/if I hear back from the New Skin company).

I thought "hydrogen peroxide " was old school and may do some harm to healthy cells..????

For as seldom as I use it, it's a product that's not even on my radar. My dentist has even used it in my mouth...and after major dental work has advised to use it mixed half with water to help my mouth heal (or another option is to rinse my mouth with salt water).

Take this bit of advice from someone who's now latex allergic-

If you use gloves next time, make sure they are latex-free. Those yellow kitchen gloves often contain latex, which is highly allergenic. Anyone can be sensitized to it and you don't want to be. It makes daily things a bit more challenging and none of us need any more challenges!
