The Oppo Medical Gel Elastic Sleeve (Half Coated) soothes lesions caused by interdigital pressure or rubbing and reduces pain from corns, blisters and hammer toes. These gel elastic sleeves are half coated with gel. There are 2 pieces per pack, each 1″ in length.
You can wear the sleeves on any two toes that are causing irritation due to pressure or friction between them. They will reduce discomfort, corns, blisters, etc. if you have sensitive skin between your toes and spend large amounts of time on your feet daily. This would apply to waitresses, air hostesses, store attendants, golfers, hikers, etc.
To apply the sleeves, first use a pair of scissors to cut one to a length matching that of the toe to which you are going to apply it. Then simply wrap the sleeve around the toe that is causing irritation or discomfort with the gel coating on the inside i.e. against the skin of the toe. Repeat with the second sleeve. Please see the illustration included in the image gallery on this product page for additional guidance. We also suggest that you remove the sleeves once daily for a few minutes each time.
You can wear the sleeves under socks and either with shoes or barefoot.
To clean the Oppo Medical Gel Elastic Sleeve (Half Coated), wash in lukewarm water using a mild detergent and then air dry. Avoid using fabric softener or bleach. Also avoid machine washing or tumble drying.
The sleeves come in 3 sizes – small, medium and large. Tube diameters are 15, 20 and 25mm respectively. For best results choose a size with a diameter just smaller that of the toe you intend to treat. The elastic property of the sleeve will help it to stretch enough to accommodate a slightly larger toe.
