Treating Cuts and Grazes

25/11/2014

Most cuts and grazes are minor and can be treated at home with minimal hassle. Thorough cleaning and covering them with a plaster is all that is needed.

Stopping the bleeding

If the cut or graze is bleeding heavily or is on a delicate part of the body, it is important that you stop the bleeding before applying any type of dressing.

Simply apply pressure to the area and if possible, raise the affected body part above the heart. This will help to slow the blood flow.

Dressing

Once the bleeding has stopped, it is important that the wound is cleaned properly. The easiest way to do this is to run the area under a tap.

Once any grit or dirt has been removed pat the area dry with a clean towel.

The next step is to apply a sterile adhesive dressing such as a plaster.

To keep the dressing clean, it is recommended that you change it as often as is necessary. Keep the wound dry by using waterproof dressings which will allow light washing of the surrounding area.

Here at Eureka! we have a wide range of plaster options. Our most popular offering are the Assorted Sterile Plasters.

Pain relief

After a few days, the wound should be fully healed, however if it is painful, you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen, to help.
