Why no black bandaids?
Question: In avoiding a American centric perspective has this moved into the realms of a british centric perspective, odd irrelevence, or am I insane. I know that personally I have heard bandages called all manner of things but never a sticking plaster...--184.108.40.206 05:38, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
Usually in the UK at least they are called "plasters", but "sticking plaster" helps differentiate from things like plaster of paris.

When was the first kinds invented? The Band-Aid article says that it was invented in 1920, but is that to say that the Band-Aid brand was the first of its kind? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Go to www.bandaid.com 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:07, 5 April 2007 (UTC).
Vetrap does not belong here
Vetrap redirects to this page, and it is listed as one of the examples. But Vet Wrap is not an adhesive bandage, but a self-adhering bandage. It does not stick to things ('adhesive'), but rather sticks only to itself and not to other things. Thus it can be used to wrap an animal's legs and will stay in place, but does not stick to their hair. T-bonham 08:59, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Plaster in a Can
I think a mention about Spray Plaster should be added to this article.
