If you have children then you probably have a never ending supply of band-aids, bandages, and antiseptic. My daughter, bless her heart, is a walking advertisement for bandages. Since she started school in August I’ve received three calls from after care reporting cases of her hitting her head on monkey bars and poles. She comes home often with band-aids an her knees and bruises on her legs. She can hang with the other kids when it comes to outdoor play.
What I have not thought to get in place of band-aids is liquid bandage. I’m not sure why it never crossed my mind it would be a great alternative. My daughter never likes to take her band-aids off because “it hurts”. My first experience with liquid bandage was in the ER. When I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with Nick I had a mishap with a knife and orange. I ended up with 10 stitches at the top of my middle finger on my left hand and a small puncture in my hand that was covered with liquid bandage. The great thing is it stays on and just fades away when done.
In addition to liquid bandage New Skin makes another interesting and useful product called Scar Fade. \
New-Skin™ Scar Fade™ Gel is a clear, odorless, non-irritating gel that will visibly reduce the appearance of scars in as little as six weeks.
Thankfully I’ve never needed or used Poison Ivy Treatment however it sounds like an excellent product to include in a first aid kit. Definitely something you should include in your back pack during a hiking trip. A hiking trip like the one you can win in the New-Skin sweepstakes. If hiking is not your choose of “poison” then check out these other exciting trips you have a chance to win.
There are 3 amazing grand prizes to win – a skiing trip to Breckenridge, CO, a tour of the Botanical Gardens in Atlanta, GA or a hiking trip in Yellowstone National Park, MT!
