American Sign Language: "bandage"

The sign for "bandage" will vary depending on what is being bandaged.

If you are talking about applying a simple "Band-Aid" type bandage or asking someone if they have a "Band-Aid" then use this generic "bandage" sign.

The dominant "H-hand" is used to show a bandage on the back of the non-dominant hand.

BANDAGE: (as in a "Band-Aid" type)

If you are talking about bandaging someone's head or arm then you can use the dominant hand in a "B" handshape and make large wrapping motions around the body part that is being bandaged. 
If you are taking about bandaging a leg or a foot, you can use the non-dominant arm or hand as a proxy to represent the leg or foot.
