natural adhesive bandages or alternatve?

My sons and I have very sensitive skin. On most abrasions we just use a natural healing salve or nothing at all, but when something is bleeding, or when we need to put on a messier salve (like ichthamol for infections or poisonous bug bites) we need bandages. However, I have been noticing that things are taking longer to heal because I am having a bad reaction to the adhesive on bandaids. I'm sure this has been the problem with a few of my son's bug bites that seem to take weeks to heal. Does anyone know of a natural brand, with a less irritating adhesive? Is there any kind without plastic? Or what do you use instead?
