A bandage is an item used in first aid.

Usage

Main article: First Aid

Basic usage

A bandage is primarily used to stop the player from bleeding, by applying it to the wound. It can be used on various injuries, including wounds and burns. After some time, depending on the wound and player's First Aid skill, the bandage will become a dirty bandage, which once removed will grant the player some first aid experience.

Wound infection

If a bleeding wound is left untreated, the player will continue to lose health until they eventually die. Leaving a wound untreated can also lead to it becoming infected depending on the player's clothing, the type of wound and whether a dirty bandage is left on. A dirty bandage can be left on a wound to stop the bleeding, however this will give the wound the highest possible chance of becoming infected. Wound infections do not affect the recovery time, threfore, since not having any bandage applied stops healing, it is reccomended to not remove badages, even if they get dirty.

An infected wound can be treated by applying a sterilized bandage to the wound. Sterilized bandages have the same rate of becoming dirty as regular bandages, but they improve the healing rate when used.

Types of wounds

In most cases, applying a bandage, whether it be sterilized or not, increases the rate of healing. The only exception to this rule are stitches. Applying a bandage to a stitch will actually decrease the healing rate, therefore taking longer to heal.
