My First Aid Kit helps Prevent MRSA Infections. Does Yours?

August 17, 2012

A few days ago I wrote about how my 3 1/2 year old just started riding his big-boy bike with out ever using training wheels, and how fast he’s getting bumped and bruised.

riding a bike

It got me thinking about how I really need to get my act together here and get myself organized and ready for injuries.

I would describe my medicine pantry (aka top-shelf-of-the-linen-closet) as “non-organized chaos.” I’ve got everything I need up there – but…. Organized, it is not.

first aid in the cabinet

So when catastrophe strikes, I go to the cabinet and find what I’m looking for. But usually I have to rummage around for a few minutes to find the things I need.

And even then – I forget to grab something most of the time.

Often times don’t even *Think* about applying any ointments until I get the wound half bandaged. And even then, finding the ointment is impossible.  We often-times would just finish bandaging and tell ourselves, ‘We’ll find it later…’ only to then forget.

What does this have to do with MRSA?

I’ve been pondering this MRSA stuff, and realizing that using SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel when caring for a wound when it happens can help protect my children from dangerous staph infections like MRSA.  It just got me thinking about *how* I can get myself to remember to USE the cream each and every time I need to use a bandage for my boys.MRSA infographic

So – recently, with the amount of times that we’ve needed some antibacterial ointment, like SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel, I’ve been storing the gel – INSIDE – the band-aid box.

Safeskin Antibacterial Kit

I mean – they kind of go hand-in-hand.  Band-aids and Antibacterial Gel.

Also not too far away is my SAFESKIN Kids Wraps – because my 1 1/2 year old, Ethan *hates* band-aids – so we have to wrap them up.

SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel is a must-have for any mom’s first aid kit. Unlike topical antibiotic ointments, SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel provides a barrier to MRSA, an infection that spreads via skin-to-skin contact when playing sports like wrestling, football, baseball or rugby, or from hard surfaces in gyms and locker rooms.

It sounds like exactly what my little one needs. Now just to actually get my dh to mount the first aid kit and I will be good to go.

    There are some great ideas in this to use in a first aid kit.

  183. MRSA is scary stuff, and it’s great to see that there’s more awareness of it these days as well as products to prevent infection.

  184. Ann Fantom says:

    As much as my daughter cuts herself, she could really use SafeSkin antibacterial gel.

  185. Lisa Garner says:

    Safeskin seems like a much better choice to keep cuts clean and I like that it lasts up to 48 hours.

  186. I didn’t know about MRSA until this campaign, scary stuff, very good information!

  187. I never really thought about the seriousness that a minor scrape could potentially turn life threatening, I also should probably get my act together considering my kids are walking accidents! Thanks for the info!

  202. Stephanie Hungerford says:

    MRSA is so scary especially since it has been on the news so much lately. My parents had this huge bright yellow Tackle box that is full of first aid stuff and this was so nice when a I was in College and we stayed the night at my parents house (so I could clean since my mom was in the hospital) that night my friend took a bath and managed to cut her leg shaving from her knee almost to her groin. She didn’t want to come out of the bathroom . She said she needed a bandage She said I think I need a hundred. I made her open the door and thank goodness I am not squimish She refused to go to the hosptital so I pulled out and used most of the box. (I use to be a Nurse) I butterflied, and cross taped the wound. then dressed the wound. I think it is so important to have a first aid kit that I keep one in my purse and in the trunk of my car

  203. I keep my gel in the band-aid box, too! So convenient.

  204. Derek Timm says:

    I usually use Neosporin but I am going to be trying out the Safeskin Gel.

  205. Ashley Tucker says:

    These look like a great product!

  206. With 3 actives kids, I really see this coming in handy.

  207. tracey byram says:

    I never knew anything about MSRA until my granddaughter had it.

  208. I learned the hard way of trying to stay stocked on first aid supplies, my son was riding his bike and crashed pretty good going down a hill and got road rash

  209. april yedinak says:

    This sounds like something we could use around here with all the scrapes and cuts my kids get.

  210. Lisa Brooks says:

    This stuff sounds Great. With so many germies out there, its nice that you can help protect even better than with the regular bandaid ointment combo.

    Awesome that its latex free too.

  211. Peggy Rydzewski says:

    skin knees are bandaids…signs of summer

  212. It is easy to become a little complacent about minor scrapes since they are so common and usually heal quickly and well, but they do have to be monitored.

  213. Kathy Pease says:

    safeskin sounds really great I never really thought about mrsa but with all the things i see on the news i guess its time to start worrying. it is better to be safe than sorry

  214. MRSA is bad. Ask the Cleveland Browns and the St. Louis Rams. Wallgreens Gift Certificates are great. Thanks.

  215. I agree this is definitely something to think about. My son is always coming up with new ways to hurt himself.

  216. wow scary how bacteria are getting stronger, I remember being a kids and getting scratched up and I just left it as is or used band aid sans antibacterial. Never got an infection, but these days I think it’s a good ides to take a little precaution when it comes to cuts and scraps

  217. My medicine cabinet is organized…but I don’t have everything I need!

  218. Chrystal J. says:

    This would be great to keep for small accidents.

  219. Great information about MRSA – Thanks, I will look for Safeskin to use in the future!

  220. Melissa VandenBerg says:

    I work in the healthcare industry. Safeskin is a VERY effective way to ward off infection and so helpful in keeping kids safe. We have seen patients with MRSA and its a very scary infection…

  221. Our first aid kit is lacking at the moment, need to update it

  222. Jennifer Peaslee says:

    MRSA is no joke…this looks like a great product

  223. Pamela Halligan says:

    I usually use band aids and Neosporin on cuts and scrapes, but they end up falling off. Safe Skin seems so much more effective. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  224. We keep a fully stocked first aid kit in each vehicle

  225. re morgan says:

    wow lots of boo boos.. thanks for the information about mrsa! We keep first aid kits in the car since we go hiking and to the park alot.

  226. Claire McKeon says:

    Thanks for the giveaway and the important info

  227. We get lots of cuts and scrapes, so this is a necessity!

  228. Richard Hicks says:

    we need this. The kids seem to get scrapes all the time when they are playing.

  230. It seems like barely a day goes by that one of us hasn’t gotten a scrape or a cut from playing sports or being outdoors – I haven’t tried any SafeSkin products, but they seem perfect for kids!

  231. Susan Smith says:

    Great information about MRSA, thanks for the giveaway

  232. Ian is forever being bashed up – this would come in handy.

  233. Denise Donaldson says:

    MRSA really scares me. I always take precautions to try to prevent it. No one in the family has had it yet.

  234. Brenda Elsner says:

    I have never tried safeskin.

  235. Thanks for the giveaway… MRSA is certainly a concern in communal settings i.e. school, locker rooms, etc.

  236. heather c says:

    We’ve had so many cases locally! It’s pretty scary!

  237. I’ve never heard of safeskin! Glad to see a product like that

  238. Aimee Fontenot says:

    I’ve never tried SafeSkin, but I’m always looking for better and safer products to use.

  239. The Safeskin Antibacterial Gel sounds like it will do a better job than the Neosporin I currently use, and I really like the Safeskin wraps too.

  240. I have always been a Neosporin mom, but I would love to give this a try

  241. Mary Cloud says:

    My kids could definitely use this

  242. Marla Bland says:

    SafeSkin sounds awesome! Better than Neosporin and a bandaid!

  243. Lucy Schwartz says:

    Scrapes, falls, cuts and bruises are all part of being active and playing for children. MRSA raises the stakes in good owie care. Being a parent isn’t for sissys

  244. jeannine s says:
