More than likely, you've bought new backpacks and school supplies and lunch boxes. After all, the lunch boxes are the best part!
You've picked cute new outfits. You've come up with a lunch plan. You've put labels on all the new belongings. But are you ready for the inevitable bumps and bruises that show up after recess and gym class?
Johnson & Johnson Wound Care has put together some great resources for families when it comes to dealing with all the scrapes and scratches that come home from school. Whether it's dealing with healing from a larger injury or dealing with common bumps and bruises, the Johnson & Johnson Wound Care site walks you through what to expect and which products to use for all stages of healing.
Correctly cleaning and protecting wounds is the best way to start the healing process and getting back to action with confidence. And all parents know that, with kids, you have to have a plan in place to help them heal. My kids, and I'm sure they aren't the only ones, are notorious for reopening semi-healed scrapes, making the healing process even longer
But, knowing how to deal with different types of wound care can also be the hardest part! With some help from the Johnson & Johnson Wound Care site, parents can find out what they need to know to help their kids heal, including:
- A “Stages of Healing” infograpic to share and save to Pinterest
- Wound Care Essentials – learn which supplies are necessary for a speedy recovery
- Information on the correct antibiotic creams, gauze pads, tapes and wraps for your injury
- A collection of videos addressing common questions and concerns people giving homecare have
- The best products for kids and active family members
Back-to-school is a great time to replenish the first aid kit at home! After the high summer usage (unless that's just at my house?), we are always in need of extra coverings and creams.
The Johnson & Johnson Wound Care site has plenty of ideas of what to add to your first aid kit, so you're prepared for any injury! While stocking up on water bottles, pencils, and notebooks, don't forget to add in bandages, ointments, gauze pads and more. It will come in handy more times than you think!
