Spending lots of time outside is important for healthy kids in Alameda, and with all that outdoor adventure come the inevitable bumps, scrapes, and cuts. But parents in the Canyon, Alameda, and Albany areas shouldn’t fear, all you need to know are a few simple steps for treating your children’s minor injuries.
A minor cut should stop bleeding on its own, but using a clean cloth and applying gentle pressure may be necessary.
Once bleeding has stopped, rinse the wound with water and pull out any debris with alcohol-cleansed tweezers. The area around the wound can be cleaned with mild soap and a washcloth, no hydrogen peroxide or alcohol is necessary.
Once the wound is clean, apply a thin layer of antibiotic cream or ointment. Appropriate topical antibiotics can be found at any drugstore in the Alameda area. Next, you should cover your child’s wound with a bandage. When the bandage becomes wet or dirty it should be changed. Once a wound has healed enough to keep infection out, bandages should not be used since air exposure will speed your child’s healing.
Remember to watch for signs of infection such as redness, drainage, increased pain, swelling, or warmth. Contact your Canyon, Alameda, or Albany area pediatrician if you have any other concerns.
