The second layer consists of specialized gauze, which is shown in Figure 11‑2. Gauze bandages do not launder well and fresh gauze must be used each time you bandage.
Gauze is wrapped around the individual fingers or toes to reduce and control swelling in these areas. If there is no significant swelling in the fingers or toes, your therapist may instruct you to omit this layer.
As an alternative to gauze, your therapist may suggest specialized short-stretch finger or toe bandages, which can be laundered, or a compression glove.
