Just wondering

Why is it that when you go to the doctor and get a shot it leaves no lasting mark but the band-aid you have to rip off leaves red battle wounds for days?!?! Where do doctors get these ridiculous industrial glue band-aids and why can't they just use normal ones like we get at the store. You know, ones that stick but also come off without taking off the top two layers of skin? That is all, carry on.

They probably buy them in bulk and want the ones that don't rip off easily.

I must have got a doctor's box by mistake one time because I put these enormous band-aids on my kid's skinned elbows and about never got them off. I had to pin his arm to the floor with my foot and grab the band-aid with both hands to get it off. Well, not quite that bad but if you ask my kid he's probably say that it sounds about right.

i am really sensitive to those things and usually tell them i can't use them. when i had my acl repaired, the surgery went find, the worst part was the infected yucky rash i got from the tape they used all around my leg.
