Hydrocolloid plasters support the body’s natural healing process. Deal with burns, blisters, and spots fast.

Burns and blisters compromise the skin's protective barrier, creating painful inflammation, sensitivity, and even open wounds that can lead to infection. A hydrocolloid gel plaster can get you to take control of an unpleasant burn or blister and get your body back to normal in no time.

Hydrocolloid Plasters

Skin-Friendly Hypoallergenic

Also called burn plasters, hydrocolloid gel plasters are designed to speed up the natural healing process while protecting the skin from drying out or being contaminated with bacteria. A burn blister plaster can be used on minor burns, scalds, cuts, and grazes to reduce pain and aid healing. By maintaining a moist environment, the hydrocolloid plaster for burns works with the body to produce a protective cover over the wound. This prevents the formation of hard scabs and reduces pain and scarring.

Discreet and Flexible

The plasters feature a thin and discreet film which fits smoothly to the skin. The breathable waterproof backing flexes with movement to protect wounds from water and germs, with a low allergy adhesive to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction. Find large burn plasters on this page that can be used on adults and children. Our plasters for burns are carefully made with hypoallergenic materials, which means they’re gentle on the skin.

Multiple Uses

Hypoallergenic materials are essential because our customers don’t just use hydrocolloid plasters on burns. They’re also effective at minimising the symptoms of spots and speeding up the skin’s natural recovery process. The gentle plaster hydrocolloid pad draws exudate out of spots, helping them heal and disappear faster, meaning they’re not just the best plasters for burns but can also help get rid of irritating blemishes.

What can Hydrocolloid Plasters be used for?

Burn on Arm

Burns

People commonly use hydrocolloid plasters for burns or may put a hydrocolloid plaster on burn blisters or friction blisters. These types of injuries cause the body to produce fluid between the layers of skin. Rather than bursting a blister, which is not recommended as it could cause infection, the best way to handle one is with a hydrocolloid blister plaster that can support drainage of the blister in a safe, hygienic environment.

Sometimes Blister Plasters are used instead of Hydrocolloid Plasters. Learn more about blister plasters in our blog.

Skin Cells

Pressure Sores or Pressure Ulcers

Our Steroplast Hydrocolloid Plaster is the best plaster for burns, scalds, and blisters. Hydrocolloid plasters might also be called gel plasters for burns. They are also used as padded plasters for pressure sores or pressure ulcers as they will encourage the regrowth of healthy skin cells while protecting the surrounding healthy tissue.

Man with Spot on Face

Spots/ Acne

Hydrocolloid plasters can help spots as they gently draw fluids out of the skin and contribute to natural healing. Using hydrocolloid plaster for acne means your delicate skin is protected underneath in a hydrated environment while it heals.

This even deters the temptation to pick at a spot which can damage the skin further and elongate the healing process. However, dermatologists advise putting hydrocolloid plasters on spots occasionally and only when treating individual pimples, rather than using them as an all-over hydrocolloid plasters acne treatment which can affect the normal function of the skins outer layer.

Using Steroplast Hydrocolloid Plasters is a much more cost-effective option than specially made hydrocolloid plaster for spots. In our article Blister Plasters: The Cheap Alternative to Acne Patches, we look into the recent viral hack of repurposing hydrocolloid blister plasters to treat acne.

How to Use Hydrocolloid Plasters

Apply Hydrocolloid Plasters correctly to keep wounds safe while they heal and prevent infection. The following guide offers a step-by-step approach to ensure optimal protection and support effective healing.

Before Application

(Click for instructions)

Applying the Plaster

Step 1 - Peel back the protective film

1. Hold the Hydrocolloid plaster in one hand. Using your thumb and index finger, carefully peel back the upper protective film. It's essential to avoid touching the underside of the plaster to maintain a clean field.

Step 2 Apply the Dressing

2. Position the plaster over the wound, ensuring that the padded, absorbent part covers it entirely. During this step, remember to touch only the protective film and the non-adhesive side of the plaster, not the wound pad.

Step 3 Secure the Dressing

3. After securing the plaster's positioning by lowering it onto the wound, you can remove the remaining protective film. Use your fingers and thumbs to pull the film away, pressing the adhesive side down as you go.

How do hydrocolloid plasters work?

Our hydrocolloid plasters are intelligently designed to reduce inflammation and create a protective environment over the injury, hastening the body’s natural healing process.

The hydrocolloid layer contains particles that draw exudate out of the blister or burn. As fluid is drawn out of the wound, it creates a hydrated gel over the top, acting as a kind of scab to protect the area and keep it moist to aid in healing and creating new tissue. When the plaster is replaced, all the exudate is removed from the top of the wound, and the new, clean plaster continues to protect the area with a fresh layer of hydrocolloid.

Find out about how hydrocolloid plasters work in more detail in our article All About Hydrocolloid Plasters.

When to seek medical assistance

If you have a large, deep wound, or signs of infection it's essential to consult a healthcare professional. Signs of infection include:

  • Redness, swelling, tenderness or pain at the wound site
  • Hot or hard feeling around the wound
  • Pus in the wound
  • A bad smell coming from the wound

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, our hydrocolloid plasters are hypoallergenic and safe for use on both adults and children.

Typically, you should change a hydrocolloid plaster every 24 to 48 hours, but it depends on the wound. If the plaster becomes dirty or loosens, replace it with a new one.

No, these plasters are designed for minor burns, blisters, and spots. Severe burns or deep wounds should be treated by a healthcare professional.

The length of time you can wear the plaster depends on the condition of the blister. Monitor it regularly and replace the plaster when needed.

While these plasters can help individual spots heal faster, they are not recommended for continuous, all-over acne treatment. Please consult with a dermatologist for comprehensive acne treatment advice.
