Who can't stop a kid from playing outside? The sun is out and fresh air is a must. However, as moms we need to prepare ourselves for those bumps and abrasions that come along with tumbling around on the grass or running on the playground. Here is a useful Melaleuca tip for treating abrasions:
Washing the area gently, yet thoroughly, with Melaleuca's Antibacterial Liquid Soap and cool water quickly reduces the pain. (Warm or hot water increases nerve stimulation and pain in most people.) Allow the stream of water to wash off all visible particles. Pick our any embedded material. Apply Melaleuca's Triple Antibiotic Ointment or Melagel and allow to remain open to the air if possible. Otherwise, use a loose bandage saturated with Triple Antibiotic Ointment or Melagel to prevent sticking. Repeat administration of ointment or gel as frequently as needed for several days until the wound is adequately covered with a scab.
