The largest gel pad was exactly what I needed! Because I continue to work, I am experiencing some difficulty keeping it in place. (Lying down is the best postion). I wear a cami under my top to hold it pretty much in place.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to have a choice of shapes. A large circle would have worked better for me than the large rectangle.
Alternating the gel pad with a cooling aloe gel (CVS brand in a large tube - no alcohol) has pretty much eliminated the pain and irritation of my skin.
I love the ability to rinse and use the gel pad over and over again.
I am very grateful that this product is out there for people like me.

If I were rich, I would use this stuff exclusively. Best thing I've been able to find for relief. I am saving what I have left for the time when nothing else helps at all. Definitely THE ace in the hole.

My wife has been dealing with breast cancer and these pads were a great relief from her burns from radiation . Lots to live for were great to work with. Very caring

I only wish we had found this website and this product earlier in my father's skin cancer journey. The large burned area was very difficult to protect and even soft cotton handkerchiefs stuck to the wound or creams. The 6x8 hydrogel dressing is easy to apply and comes away easily without sticking to the wound. Dad finds relief the minute this dressing is applied. I wish I had known about this when treating pressure sores some months ago. This will be a vital part of my first aid kit from now on.
