Clearly the answer is get in the shower, loosen them up, and then they peel off with no pain whatsoever. Especially if they are in the mammary gland area. One simply wets, shampoos, conditions, and whilst the conditioner does its job the band-aids are harmlessly removed. It works for me.

Is this a real question?

Honestly, I'd be slow and careful - you don't always know that the thing is healed; I had skinned knees as a child where the goopy scabs would attach to the bandaids. Ouch!

But, you can be our tester. Do it really, really fast and tell us what it feels like.

Franco I think this would work for any adhesive tape/bandage combination!

Rinse it off in the shower if you can. Otherwise, rip it off.

Reminds me of one of my poorer moments as a parent. I'd never used that Liquid Bandage stuff before but had heard people talk about it. My daughter (7 at the time) had a honking blister on her hand from swinging from the monkey bars. It had burst and I thought it needed to be covered so I put that stuff on it. Bad, bad, bad idea. It burned like crazy and we couldn't wash it off and she howled and cried for a long, long time. The label didn't say anything about not putting it on an open wound, but I asked a friend and she said "oh no, never on anything open." Finally put some aloe vera on it and that made it feel better. She's still resentful over that one.

Definitely slow! Or wear them in the shower and let the warm water loosen them up. The less pain the better!
