Ever heard the famous quote about how getting hit by a bus is comedy, but a paper-cut is a tragedy? No matter how small an injury is, it shouldn’t be ignored. It hurts. It’s a source of inflammation. And any cut or scrape could become infected if not properly cared for. To help your small cuts, scrapes, and other skin injuries heal faster, try these tricks!
Are you remembering to use colloidal silver to the max? Not only can colloidal silver be used as a daily immune supporting supplement, it’s got a long and continuing history supporting Burns and other skin injuries. Spray colloidal silver on skin and let dry, or wet the pad of a bandage before applying.
Are you preventing scaring? Moisture helps wounds heal neater, so use a sterile ointment before sticking bandaging. Vaseline is the age-old option, but for more advanced support try MesoSilver Topical Cream. It combines the skin healing support of colloidal silver with other skin supporting oils and nutrients to help small injuries heal better.
How are you putting on a band-aid? If you need it to stay on all day, try this “hack“:
- Cut each sticky strip in half toward the cotton pad
- Center the cotton pad on the wound
- Criss-cross the strips you made in a double x pattern around your finger.
This will keep the band-aid on a little longer. To avoid cutting off circulation (no matter how you wrap it) just gently press the sticky part down, don’t pull tight.
Are you maintaining wound care? Don’t just stop the bleeding, keep using whatever tricks work best for you until your skin is at the soft pink stage of healing. To prevent scaring and infections, don’t forget about the little wounds! Keep using bandages, colloidal silver, and regular wound cleaning.
