There have been several frequently asked questions regarding the Protecta-Gel®. One must be aware that the Protecta-Gel® is NOT an adhesive, it is made of medical grade, mineral oil based gel. Avoid products for nasal bridge sores that contain adhesives. Adhesives are not very skin friendly and can remove upper-level epithelial cells each time an adhesive product is removed from the nose/face. Removal of the upper epithelial skin cells from adhesives can cause nasal bridge sores sooner. One must also note that if a patient is restless and moving their head a lot, both the Protecta-Gel® and the CPAP / Non Invasive ventilation (NIV) mask can move too.
