Have you got products in your first aid kit that look old and have passed their expiry date? Do you still have first aid products using old fashioned treatment methods? Time offers new technologies!
Treatment advice for minor wounds used to be: stop the bleeding, clean the wound and let the wound heal by drying in the open air, but we now know different. A moist wound healing environment has been proven to facilitate the healing process and covered with a sterile dressing, protects from infection and contamination.
Some first aid kits are shared and therefore any signs of contamination should be considered not safe and unsafe items should be disposed of.
A first aid kit should include your personal medicines and a range of products for an emergency at home. These emergencies include cuts and grazes, burns and scalds and blisters. Leukoplast® offers minor wound treatment advice and a range of dressings suitable for everyday situations. Visit Every Scrape Covered to find a suitable dressing to meet your needs.
