We’re happy to hear our article was helpful!
After reading blog, I feel taking right measures at the right time is very important to control a situation like this.
I don’t get the t-shirt cutting pattern. Why not start at the bottom and go around and around the shirt base as you spiral up? That way you have one long strip? The pattern shown looks like you’ll get 7 circular straps of varying length.
And why apply PolySporin to the entire strip? Why not to that area affected by a wound? Seems a waste of ointment.
They didn’t clarify the pic very well, but the way you were thinking of cutting the shirt is what they want you to do. They’re just doing it at a angle. Just apply the ointment to the 4″×4″ gauze, then wrap with the shirt.
