steri strips ?? how long on



  • Sorry to hear about your reaction. I definately react to bandaids and tape. I still have tape glue on me from 3 weeks ago and areas of redness in the shape of bandaids. I did not react to the steri strips however. Mine started falling off about 2 weeks after surgery. My incision however itches all the time. :)

  • I think I had the same problem, I'm not alergic to alot of things, I was alergic to those strips. :S

  • I left mine on for 10 days.. I broke out with some acne in the area from all the glue and other stuff I think. But my incision looks great
  • Thanks for all your input, I think the itch crisis is over. I think I got them off in time so there will be no scaring. Lynette
