Taking Care of Cuts & Scrapes 

Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of CVS. All opinions are my own. 

My daughter is always getting cuts and scrapes on her legs. She runs around and climbs all over the place and inevitably gets a cut and scrape on her legs. I started putting her in pants to prevent the injuries, but I came to realize that practice is just unrealistic. It is especially impossible in the summer and at school because it is so hot here in Florida.

Cuts and Scrapes Care (7 of 7)-2

My daughter inevitably scrapes up her knee and legs. You can only protect your kids from so much. The other day, she was picking up speed and took a spill on to the paved walkway. I wanted to jump to stop her from falling, but I could not make it there in time. I immediately came to her aid to help her up and soothe her crying.Cuts and Scrapes Care (3 of 7)-2 Cuts and Scrapes Care (5 of 7)-2 Cuts and Scrapes Care (4 of 7)-2

First, you rinse off the cut or scrape.

Second, I spray first aid spray on to the cut or scrape.

Next, I use the triple antibiotic cream to fight off infection.

Then, once the bleeding stops, I cover the wound with a bandage that is the right size for the injury.

I have all these items and many more in my first aid kit that I made a few weeks ago. Check out the kit HERE.

I got awesome deals on all the items from CVS with the ExtraCare Rewards program. I got a coupon straight to my email for $10 off $40. If you opt into receiving email offers through the ExtraCare Rewards program, you’ll receive rewards based on your shopping habits. You’ll get emails with deals on your favorites. You can also send the offers to your CVS card so that you don’t have to print out anything.

If you use the CVSExtraCare Card for all of your first aid kit items, you will receive 2% back in ExtraBucks coming up on October 1.  ExtraBucks are paid quarterly – July 1, October 1, January 1, April 1, so everything you spend now gets you more $ off at the end of the quarter1
