DIRECTIONS FOR USE

IMPORTANT: Skin should be clean and dry before tape is applied. Tape should always be cut, never torn.
1. Prepare skin as directed by your physician or as follows: Gently clean the area to be covered to remove scales, crusts, dried exudates, and any previously used ointments or creams. A germicidal soap or cleanser should be used to prevent the development of odor under the tape. Shave or clip the hair in the treatment area to allow both good contact with the skin and comfortable removal. If a shower or tub bath is to be taken, it should be completed before the tape is applied. The skin should be dry before application of the tape.
2. Remove tape from package and cut a piece slightly larger than area to be covered. Round off corners.
3. Pull white paper backing from transparent tape. Be careful that tape does not stick to itself.
