With the arrival of fall and kids back in school and extra-curricular activities it means more chances for the inevitable cuts and scrapes. While you can't prevent the minor wounds from happening (unless everyone lives in a bubble!) you CAN avoid potential skin infections that can result from these minor injuries.
SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel from Kimberly-Clark Professional is a new first aid topical antibacterial gel that provides a barrier to MRSA, highly contagious staph bacteria that can infect skin, invade other parts of the body and is resistant to many antibiotics. Available now at select Walmart stores, SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel offers a long-lasting protective barrier on uninfected minor cuts, scrapes, and burns - up to 48 hours - if the bandaged wound stays clean and dry. And the non-greasy formula helps bandages to stay in place better!We received a tube of SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel to review, but luckily we haven't had to use it yet. I did open it to investigate and was happy to find that it wasn't greasy and had no odor. I also like the fact that it forms a barrier that lasts for up to two days, which means you don't have to replace the bandage or reapply the gel as long as the bandage stays clean and dry.
