According to a survey from the Johnson & Johnson BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages team, many people are uninformed about proper wound care. Their survey revealed that 56 percent of people to do not ask for information or advice on wound care. Instead they rely on knowledge that has been passed on from their parents or even their grandparents, which may contribute to popular misconceptions about advances in the science of wound healing.

This can also result in perpetuating wound care myths, as even seemingly trustworthy websites can sometimes have flawed or out-of-date information.
