Have you tried the regular Johnson and Johnson gauze with paper tape to keep it attached?  That’s what I usually use for scrapes.  I’m glad that your Fiance is okay though (I won’t lecture).  When I was little, I was rollerblading and didn’t wear my wrist braces like my parents said.  Well I fell and broke my wrist and then I put the brace on so my parents wouldn’t know!

I don’t know if they have self adhesive, but the normal Johnson and Johnson tape works really well.  Or you can try the kind that only adheres to itself so you don’t have to worry about pullling out his leg hair!

Ah so then you don’t have to worry about that.  Just the regular old cloth tape would be good.  I would use a couple layers of tape around his knee to make sure it doesn’t come off when he moves.

Don’t get just plain gauze though, get the non-stick stuff (it has like a weird plastic-like layer) otherwise you will get it stuck in the wound and make things worse. Vet wrap also works wonders. It sticks to itself and is flexible. (you can buy it at target, its just called something different!)

I have never had a problem with regular gauze sticking to a wound.  I usually coat the wound with Neosporin or something before putting on gauze though.

Rosie Girl already mentioned this, but definitely get the non-adherent dressing material. In the clinics where I’ve worked, it’s called “telfa nonadherent dressing”. Do NOT just get regular gauze, or it will stick to the wound and be incredibly uncomfortable to remove.

If it’s bleeding a lot, has he tired butterfly bandages?  Then maybe wrapping it in gauze?

I had a really bad accident one time and it included burns.  THE BEST item that I used was large, non-stick gauze pads.  I would spray the wound with anti-bacterial spray then apply the gauze pads and secure with tape.  Here is what I used:
