My kids have been active in a number of outdoor sports while we’ve been in the Houston area, including track, soccer, and marching band. A frequent hazard during practices and games has been the numerous mosquito bites they get, which then swell and irritate them to no end. I’m always mindful to keep them from scratching, because once those bites open, they are prone to all types of dangerous infections, including MRSA.
SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel from Kimberly-Clark Professional is a new first aid topical antibacterial gel that provides a barrier to MRSA, a highly contagious staph bacteria that can infect skin, invade other parts of the body and is resistant to many antibiotics.
MRSA gains access through open skin and is transmitted through direct contact – which happens often during children’s sports – as well as through hard surfaces in gyms and locker rooms. Using SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel when caring for a wound when it happens can help provide a barrier and protect your children from MRSA.
What if your child already has a cut or scrape and you’re concerned that it might be infected? SAFESKIN* has put together this fabulous infographic for helping moms understand how to identify MRSA:
SAFESKIN* Kids Antibacterial Gel is available at select Walgreens locations with a suggested retail price of $4.95. For your convenience, they have a handy store locator, as well as valuable product coupon!
