When it comes to cuts, blisters and abrasions on your feet, it’s hard to find the right bandage that will stay put and not slip off under socks and shoes. Liquid bandages are an effective alternative to traditional bandages; with brush-on or spray applicators, they provide flexible coverage for open wounds and cracks. FN rounded up a few of our favorite liquid bandages that you can buy now. These products from brands like Nexcare and New-Skin also offer advantages similar to many adhesive bandages including waterproof protection, antiseptic treatment and germ-blocking seals.
