Tips for Cleaning, Treating and Protecting Minor Wounds

(NC)–A recent Ipsos-Reid survey indicated that an overwhelming majority of Canadians have a lot to learn when it comes to treating minor wounds. A staggering 88 per cent of Canadians incorrectly believe that a wound heals best when left uncovered to ‘breathe’ or air out, and 92 per cent mistakenly think scabs are a healthy part of the healing process.

"The best way to protect a wound is to cover it with a bandage until fully healed. Bandages that absorb a wounds fluid and maintain a natural moisture balance are ideal for healing and enables skin cells to migrate together to form new tissue," says Dr. Kevin C. Moran, Scarborough General Hospital. "Letting a wound scab actually slows this process and can lead to unsightly scars and increased discomfort and pain, especially for children."

The results of the survey should help to dispel the myths held by millions of Canadians and shed light on the proper procedures to follow when caring for minor cuts and scrapes. Following BAND-AID® Brand’s easy-to-remember "Clean, Treat & Protect" regimen will help maximize the healing process.

Clean, Treat & Protect calls for all minor wounds to be thoroughly cleansed with an antiseptic wash as soon as possible to remove dirt, then treated with an antibiotic ointment to stave off possible infection and lastly protected with a bandage until the wound is fully healed. According to the survey, 56 per cent of Canadians do not clean their wounds with an antiseptic wash and only half (50 per cent) even bother to apply a bandage.

"No matter how small the cut, Canadians need to be educated about proper wound care procedures and understand that it is essential in minimizing the risk of infection," says Moran. "With summer being the time of year when minor wounds are most prevalent, as children and adults alike become more physically active, the news comes at the right time."

Facts about Mior Wound Care

You probably think you know all the facts when it comes to the topic of minor wound care – if you cut your finger, just dab a tissue on it and you’re ready to go! Unfortunately it is not as simple as that. Minor wounds deserve special treatment in order to heal most efficiently and minimize the appearance of scars. So before you peel off that bandage make sure you know the difference between the facts and the misconceptions on minor wound care.

Misconception: It is best to let a minor wound heal over with a scab.

Fact: Scabs actually impede the healing process by creating a barrier between healthy skin cells. The cells have to work their way under the scab in order to form new tissue and heal. Scabs can also be easily torn or scratched, causing re-injury.

Misconception: It is best to let a wound "breathe" or air out.

Fact: The best way to protect a wound is to cover it with a bandage until fully healed. Bandages that absorb a wounds fluid and maintain a natural moisture balance are ideal for healing and enables skin cells to migrate together to form new tissue.

Misconception: It is best to leave a wound uncovered.

Fact: Covering a wound with bandages is essential to wound care: a bandage provides extra cushioning and protection from any re-injury that may occur, as well as preventing exposure to water, germs and dirt.

With safety in mind, a variety of advanced care products have been created to treat all minor wounds, including BAND-AID® Brand Hurt-Free™ Antiseptic Wash – a cleanser featuring an anesthetic to help ease the throbbing of minor wounds – and BAND-AID® Brand Water Block Plus™ Finger-Wrap – designed to stay on fingers when wet.
