Did You Know?
Cuts and scrapes – skin abrasions – are common in children and teenagers who like to roughhouse. You can get them by falling down or getting into an accident. Minor skin abrasions don’t usually require medical attention because they heal on their own but it is important that you keep them clean and free from infection.
Easy things to remember…
- Stop the bleeding with a clean piece of cloth or gauze and light pressure. Keep the wound elevated above the heart, if possible.
- Wash the wound with soap and water (do not do this with an animal bite) or just clean water or saline.
- You can use clean tweezers to remove small bits of dirt or other particles from the wound.
- You can use iodine to clean the wound and the skin around it. Clean the wound first then the skin around the area.
- Use an antibiotic cream like Neosporin or Polysporin on the wound.
- Cover the wound with a band-aid or gauze and bandages.
