Medical cotton is mainly used in sanitary and surgical environments to prevent and stop injury bleeding and small punctures like the ones caused by injections. Nowadays, medical cotton rolls are replacing the traditional cotton balls, since the former are much easier to use and are more absorbent than gauzes.
