@candyquilt-- I agree with you, there can be some issues with bandage tape. If you have to use bandage tape on a regular basis and have sensitive skin, I recommend hypoallergenic medical tape.
It doesn't make skin red and itchy. Since bandage tape needs to remain in place to keep dressing intact, it has to be very sticky. So unless you want bandage tape that moves around allows your wound to get wet when showering, you will want to use durably and sticky bandage tape.
There are some things you can do to make removal easier. A trick I learned at the hospital is applying some rubbing alcohol to the ends of the tape to make it easy to peel. The rubbing alcohol should not come in contact with the wound. Just apply a small amount to the tape and apply a little more as you peel. The tape will peel right off without tugging on body hair or causing skin irritation.
