Many of us are allergic to the adhesive on some tapes. Conventional tape kills a layer of my skin in less than a day. I keep a variety of bandages and tape on hand because cuts are just part of woodworking.

One thing that has helped is developing a habit of never pulling or pushing a blade toward skin. Takes a little attention but better than bleeding, especially if taking blood thinners.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
