Got A Scrape? Do The Best To Help It Heal!
Scrapes, medically termed abrasions, are the most common wounds we see, especially in children. When they play outdoors, children are more prone to get scrapes on their hands, knees and elbows during their active play time. First clean the scrape with water and soap. Hydrogen peroxide can also be used for cleaning. Apply a thin layer of Antibiotic ointment and leave it open to breathe in the air. Generally, most of abrasions don't bleed so the best thing is not to put a tight bandage and leave it to air. If you notice active bleeding, apply a loose bandage and you can remove it once the bleeding stops.
