A self-adhering bandage or cohesive bandage is a type of bandage or wrap that coheres to itself, but does not adhere well to other surfaces.

Because of this, it is commonly used as a wrap on limbs, since it will stick to itself and not loosen. It is used on humans, but also commonly used as a wrap on the legs of livestock because it will not stick to hair, so it is easily removed.
