Cuts, scratches and abrasions are part of everyday life particularly for children.

Cuts are caused when a sharp object, like a knife or broken glass, slices through the skin.

Scratches tend to be minor cuts when a sharp or pointy object, like thorns or fingernails, is pulled along the skin.

Abrasions or scrapes occur when the skin is rubbed against a hard surface such as gravel, wood or cement.

How to Treat Cuts, Scratches and Abrasions

Most minor cuts, scrapes and scratches can be taken care of at home.  The first priority is to stop the bleeding if any, cleanse the area and prevent infection from setting in.  Whenever the skin is damaged, harmful bacteria can invade the wound causing it to become red and swollen.

Following are some suggested treatments:

Cuts

Scratches

Abrasions

NB.  For more serious injuries or if symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
