    Hi,

    Does any one out there knows of a good tape brand, sold in the USA, to use over finger blisters. In Europe I used to use Leukoplast tape which was the best for most players I knew. It didn't move at all even at the most humid conditions. Yet when you removed it from your finger it was easy and painless (didn't take the blister with it as some other tapes do). Unfortunately, Leukoplast tape isn't sold in the us. Does any one know what would be the equivalent tape here in the US. I know that in Europe Leukoplast tape is still number one.

    Thanks

    Thanks,
    The websites are in the UK and Australia. I am looking for an equivalent tape which can be easily found in the US.

    Haven't ever used Leukoplast before, but from what I have looked at, Leukotape (which can be bought many retailers in the US, like Amazon or at medical supply stores), may be your best bet if you are looking in the US only.
    I have heard it stays pretty well, but is still able to breath (albeit slightly).

    What do players put here in the US on finger blisters so they could keep on playing and not wait until their blisters heal?

    I just use athletic tape.

    I usually put it on before I get blisters.....in the spots I know I would if the tape wasn't there.

    I use paper tape that you can find in your local RiteAid or CVS. I forgot the name of the maker, it's probably Johnson and Johnson. The paper tape is breatheable and it holds very well to the skin, even when sweating. However, it is a little painful to remove.
