Compeed Blister Pack Plasters - Where to buy in Bologna?

Hi,

Does anyone know if you can buy the compeed blister plasters anywhere in Bologna? Unfortunately I don't have time to order them from the UK. Are they sold in any of the local farmacias?

Thanks,

Heather

You should be able to get them (or an equivalent product) from any pharmacy.

I tried in Kuala Lumpur in Watsons, Guardian and Caring ....and nothing.

I don't think that they have those kind of things here, because those pharmacies where I tried are the biger ones here.

I believe there are now comparable products in the US so you might want to do some careful looking here.

I used to be a big user of Compeed, buying in the UK. I was shocked a couple of years ago to see what I believe was a Bandaid product that also had the Compeed logo somewhere on the packaging, so they may have acquired US rights to it. I believe I bought some of those,but ended up throwing them out a couple of years later as I just haven't been having the blister or near-blister problems I used to have. So have not checked the shelves lately, but look on the bandaid shelves and look for a package that has an image of a Compeed-type product on it.

I frequently need products like this when traveling... does anyone know the Italian word for such?

FYI; LIDL supermarkets carry a blister plaster comparable to compeed for a fraction of the price (personal experience).

And for #7: the Italian term would be "cerotto per vesciche" (pron. veh-SHEE-kay).
