I can't use band-aids because i'm terribly allergic to the adhesive. what are my options?

Paper tape: "paper tape" can be found in a drug store, and it tends to be less allergenic than band-aids. Use cotton gauze to cover the wound, and paper tape to keep it in place. It won't stick as well as band-aids, so will need to be replaced more frequently.
