Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is permissible for the pilgrim who is doing ‘Umrah or Hajj to put a bandage on his leg to support it if it is hurting him, and even if it is not hurting him, if that will serve a purpose for him. Bandages and the like are not regarded as clothing. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
