The No-Panic Guide To Treating Kids’ Bumps, Bites, Cuts And Bruises (Win!)

August 26, 2020

Bumps, bites, cuts and bruises are a normal part of childhood. Fortunately, most injuries are minor and require only a little attention. While you can’t always stop your natural-born daredevil from getting hurt, there’s plenty you can do to prevent and make them feel better while speeding up the healing process. Follow these tips to avert and heal your kid’s minor boo-boos quickly for a wound-free summer. —Vita Daily

Prevent insect bites. Keep those pesky mosquitos away with the help of The Great Outdoors Insect Repellent for Kids. This little bottle of goodness keeps critters at bay and its low-level DEET formula is ideal for kids who need short-term protection. Now your littles can enjoy all their summer activities rather than running away from irksome mosquitoes. Available on mec.ca, amazon.ca and well.ca.

Bites, cuts, scrapes and burns. Bactine First Aid Pump Spray relieves the pain and itch of minor bites, cuts, scrapes and burns on contact while preventing skin infections by effectively killing germs. Plus, unlike hydrogen peroxide, it does not sting! Available at Walmart and walmart.ca.

Bumps and bruises. Sometimes it seems like our children are accident prone. One minute they’re up, then the next they’re down—with a bump or a bruise to prove it! Hyland’s homeopathic Bumps ’n Bruises tablets are easy to use and dissolve instantly in the mouth while relieving pain, swelling, bruising and soreness. This safe and gentle all-natural formula contains no aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, artificial flavours, dyes or parabens. Available on amazon.ca.

Head lice. Sometimes these uninvited little friends find their way back home with you. Add that extra protection against lice while helping to detangle your little one’s strands with Shield’s Leave-in Detangling Spray. Formulated with natural aromatherapy oils proven to repel lice and provide easy styling for their hair. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and London Drugs.
