A simple scrape or scratch can turn into so much more with the threat of MRSA lurking behind every corner. Daycare centers, gyms, playgrounds and classrooms are breeding grounds for germs and bacteria. These are the places our children visit on a regular basis so we have to keep them safe.
SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel is the first of its kind in a topical prevention to MRSA. MRSA is a highly contagious and antibiotic-resistant staph bacterial infection that affects many children. It is contracted from skin to skin contact and can present as sores on the body.
Shaun has recently started football practice. Each day him and 25 other kids are barreling over each other in insect riddled grass for 3 hours. He comes home each day sore, tired, sweaty and often scratched up. I’ve worried about things like athletes foot and ticks but what about MRSA. What if he’s up against someone else who is carrying the bacteria. How should I be protecting him?
A few months back I burned myself doing a simple craft. It was a small wound but one that came with lots of pain and a long healing process. I worried about the scarring and possiblity of infection. I was prescribed a pricey ointment. SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel is an inexpensive, antibiotic free, easy to apply gel than can get tossed in his equipment bag and used whenever he comes off the field banged and bruised. SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel is a long lasting protective barrier on burns, cuts, scrapes and bug bites. School starts in just a few weeks, I can have this handy for when they come home complaining of the newest battle scar from the playground.
