They don't stick to my skin for too long (even if I keep the bandages dry, especially on relatively hairy parts of my body) and I might be allergic to the adhesive. What should I do?

Try a different brand.

Some stick better than others. Some stick too well. The Band-Aid brand goes from one extreme to another in how well they work (or don't) depending on what type you buy.

If you're really allergic to the adhesive, talk to a doctor. Maybe they know of more "hypo-allergenic" bandages on the market for people like you.
