The pad is commonly collected either by cotton or a water-absorbing gel to collect any fluid leaving the wound. Adhesive dressing helps to protect the cut or abrasion from bacteria, damage, friction, and dirt and thus, results in quick therapeutic process of the wound. It also helps hold the skin’s two cut ends together and hence fasten the healing process.
