I'm writing a book about this girl who has had a hard life and she meets a guy and he fixes her blah blah blah. The title is going to be "Evelina's Bandaid." Alot/Most of my books have been in the most popular section of wattpad and I was wondering if I used the word bandiad would it be concidered copyright? Like I don't want to get in trouble or anything if I end up wanting to publish the book. Bandaid is such a relitive term. Same with "Q-tip" appossed to "Cotton Swab." "Bandage" just doesn't fit with the title.

Band-aid was originally a trademark of Johnson & Johnson, but its common use to generically describe similar products led to it losing its protected trademark status.
If you aspire to be an author, you need to proofread and spell check your work. You have at least 4 misspelled words in your post. I offer this as a constructive criticism and not as a put down; an author should always be proud of their written work product.1
