A crepe bandage is used for varicose veins, weak ankles, knees and wrists, sprains and general support. It is used to support the injured area and to avoid further swelling.
The crepe bandage should be wrapped snugly around the area in need of support. This may be an ankle, wrist or a knee. Make sure the bandage is not too tight. It should support the injured area, but not hinder circulation.
