e.g. \"ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO PLASTERS

It is apparent that some employees who have attended first-aid training courses have developed the mistaken impression that plasters are banned. This has led to the belief that first-aiders should not use plasters when providing treatment to e.g. a child with a cut knee. This is not the case. Plasters (individually wrapped sterile adhesive dressings) are safe provided that they are not used on persons who may suffer an allergic reaction to certain types of plaster.

Before plasters are used, first-aiders should establish whether the person requiring treatment has any such allergy. If the person has such an allergy an alternative dressing, ie a non-allergic plaster or dressing, should be used.

Persons who have no allergy to plasters can, of course, be treated with any kind of appropriate plaster (fabric or waterproof type) from the first-aid kit supply. Plaster on a continuous roll or strip should not be used because of the risk of cross infection.\"

Hi Adam, thank you for your answer. In the Netherlands I find it hard to find information about plaster allergy, that's why I wanted to be sure about the term before looking for information in English on the Internet. Sometimes a translation is easier than you think. This was my first translation question on KudoZ, and I am very pleased with the quick answer. Thank you for your help!
