Treating Cuts and Scrapes

Cuts and scrapes are no fun. Whether you were injured in an accident, fell down, or simply made a careless error and wound up with a wound, there are many options to care for cuts and scrapes. Peroxide can be used to cleanse the area, then an antibacterial ointment can be applied to prevent infection and promote adequate healing so that a scar does not form. If the cut is larger, stitches or sutures may need to be instilled. Oftentimes if the area in which the cut occurred is on a limb, local anesthetic can be used to numb the area so that you do not have to be sedated. In other more serious cases, you will need to be put to sleep.
