The paediatric waterproof plaster arm cast cover bandage protector is specially designed for children.
The surface of the product is printed with a beautiful picture. The waterproof cast cover is more beautiful and practical when used, and the children are more acceptable to it.
It is a self-sealing, self-supporting garment which prevents the penetration of water to plaster casts and wound dressings on arms or legs during bathing. It is simple and comfortable to use and will last through the average user’s duration of treatment.
Signs and symptoms of a fracture
Older children will usually be able to tell you where they are sore and can explain what happened to cause the injury. This can make it easier to identify if a fracture has occurred. It can be more difficult to identify a fracture in infants or toddlers. They may cry and not use the affected area, but there may be no obvious injury.
If you think your child has a fracture, they may have the following symptoms:
- pain or tenderness at the injury site
- swelling or redness around the injury
- deformity (unusual shape) of the injured area
- not wanting to move or use the injured area.
How can I keep my cast in good shape?
Try these tips:
- Keep it clean. Keep dirt and sand away from the inside of your child’s cast.
- Skip toiletries. Avoid placing powder, lotion or deodorant on or near the cast.
- Leave adjustments to your child’s doctor. Don’t pull the padding out of your child’s cast. Don’t trim the cast or break off rough edges without first asking your child’s doctor.
