Fixing Your Children’s Summer Cuts and Scrapes
Having a first-aid kit handy is a wonderful thing, especially if you have little ones! Whether on the go or at home, it is a lifesaver for smaller injuries. Ultimately, a medical kit will give you the peace of mind you deserve for a carefree summer.
As soon as your toddlers start moving around, they can injure themselves. It can be anything from a bruised knee to a bump on the head. If you are lucky, a gentle kiss on the boo-boo and a band-aid will do the trick! However, other times, you need more than that to resolve the situation – an emergency first-aid kit!
Some common injuries
There are a few common child injuries that may happen to your child. Here are some of them:
· Cuts – even as an adult, it is easy to cut yourself. When that happens to your child, all you need to do is hold a clean piece of gauze on top of it for about 15 minutes to stop the bleeding. Clean the area with a little bit of water and remove the debris (if there is any). Cover the wound with a small/large band-aid.
· Burns – whenever this happens, hold the area under cold running water. If there is a blister, cover it with a band-aid. Avoid popping the blister. After an hour or so, you can remove the band-aid to apply an antibiotic cream.
· Nosebleeds – running around all the time is bound to end in a fall and a nosebleed. Once this happens, have your child sit up straight and lean forward. Gently have them blow their nose to remove any loose blood. Use the thumb and index finger to squeeze both nostrils, even if only one side is bleeding. Keep them pinched for 5 – 10 minutes without looking! If bleeding continues, seek medical attention.
· Bites or stings – Summer is a time when everything comes alive, including all flora and fauna. When your child gets a bee sting, you need to know how to remove the stinger. Keep tweezers in your first-aid kit, an ice pack, and a topical cream that will reduce the swelling.
