2. The Best Budget Latex-Free Bandages
All Terrain Bandages (30 Count)
“Those who are allergic to latex know that when it touches the skin it can become itchy, red, and irritated. Applying a latex bandage to a wound for someone with a latex allergy literally adds insult to injury,” Dr. Shine wrote. That said, it can be difficult to find a stretchy alternative that fits well and moves with you. “These bandages are latex-free and made with a 100% sterile fabric that provides flexible coverage in 3 different sizes. These are particularly good if you need to place them over moving joints as opposed to flat surfaces of the skin. They are a wise choice if you will be engaging in physical activity,” according to Dr. Shine. However, they are not specifically hypoallergenic by nexgenmedical

One reviewer wrote: “I usually get a rash from the adhesive on bandaids. They fit well but do not cause a rash. They come in multiple sizes.”
3. The Best Skin Barrier Film
Safe n’ Simple Skin Barrier Wipes (25 Count)
Instead of applying adhesives directly to their skin, those with allergies can use a skin barrier film, which is a “wipe or spray that provides a protective layer between your skin and the bandage,” Dr. Gonzalez wrote. While it “cannot be applied directly to a wound” and it shouldn’t “be used on your face,” Safe n’ Simple is suitable for most sensitive skin because it’s sting-free, fragrance-free, and alcohol-free. These wipes are also large and individually packaged. Plus, they come with an applicator wand. When it’s time to remove or reapply, the formula comes off easily with soap and water.
