I am sure this has been posted before but I keep getting a "fatal error" every time I search terms like "road rash treatment"

Anyway...whats that netting stuff that the pros use that appears to stay in place while they're riding. I have a pretty severe case of road rash and suspect that I will need something that will "stay-put" when I am able to get back on the bike. Right now, my bandages kinda droop off by the end of the day.

Thanks!

the netting the pros use is tube gauze, however, stockings work well and are much cheaper and easier to get. Also for treatment of road rash silvadine cream work better then anything i have tried but it is prescription only.

When I had a major crash in 2003, I had both a broken shoulder and a huge patch of road rash on my upper thing/butt (the crash literally ripped off my shorts -- I hit the road at 44.5 mph according to my bike computer). The shoulder hurt like hell, but the road rash was worse. My sympathy goes to you. Good luck and speedy recovery.
