Cuts, grazes and minor burns
Cuts and grazes are all too common as your children reach the age where they’re always running around outdoors! Little accidents can happen, and Sudocrem is always on hand to help.
Use a little Sudocrem on the affected area to soothe sore skin. Your little ones will be up and running around again in no time. (And comparing war wounds no doubt!)
Treatment for abrasions
Abrasions occur when little elbows or knees are scraped, leaving the area red and tender. Clean the area using a clean cloth or cotton wool swab with a little water and mild soap. Then apply Sudocrem to soothe and protect damaged skin.
Treatment for small cuts
Like an abrasion ensure you wash the area and after washing you may wish to hold the area under cold running water to ensure all dirt has been removed. A small amount of Sudocrem can be applied before covering the area with a suitably sized plaster. Once the cut has begun to heal, you can remove the plaster if you wish, as exposing the cut to the air can help the healing process.
Treatment for larger cuts
A deep cut may require medical attention, particularly if it is bleeding heavily. Raising the injury above the heart can help slowdown the blood flow. If you suspect the cut could be infected or you have any concerns, consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Superficial burns can be very painful; it is important to cool down the area as quickly as possible. Plunge the area into cold water or hold under a cold running tap for a few minutes, until the pain has subsided. Applying Sudocrem can also help to soothe the sore and tender skin.
If symptoms persist or if there are side effects, please consult your doctor.
