Protection First with Nexcare Review & Giveaway (CAN 11/14)

Protection First with Nexcare Review & Giveaway (CAN 11/14)

There are two things a parent of a toddler or preschool age kid can never have enough of – tissue and bandages.  Runny noses and cuts and scrapes are inevitable at this age.  And truth be told, not every little scratch my four year old gets actually needs a bandage, but she thinks they do. Of course when you have a kid who thinks she’s a super hero, karate master, bike riding princess you are bound to encounter some minor injuries that do call for some proper attention and treatment.

I’d like to pretend I’m graceful and poised and never do silly thinks like fall up the stairs (yes up) or trip over my own big feet.  But I do.  A lot actually. And my husband, the carpenter, has his fair share of minor (thankfully minor) injuries as well. It doesn’t matter if you are 4 or 40, when you have a cut or scrape it’s important that you take care of it to prevent infection, prevent scarring and speed up the healing process.

Protection First with Nexcare

If you’re a parent (or even if you’re not) you are probably familiar with the Nexcare line of bandages and products.

The Nexcare™ Brand offers a medically superior product line that is trusted by hospitals and doctors and backed by decades of 3M research and innovation.

Here’s a look at some of the products Nexcare has to offer:

Bandages

I love the Nexcare water proof bandages.  I spent a lot of time in the kitchen so having a bandage that I feel confident is keeping germs out when I’m handing food or cleaning up is important. I also like that they are clear so I don’t have to draw attention and explain every cut I get.  My daughter really likes the Nexcare Brights. Not only because they are so wonderfully colorful, but because they are also very, very comfortable.

Adhesive Pads

With a little one who is learning to ride a bike and just sometimes runs faster than she should, we tend to get the odd scraped knee or elbow.  These larger adhesive pads are perfect for covering up and protecting those bigger scrapes.

The Nexcare Tegaderm dressing and pads change up the way we think about wound protection and healing.  For years most of us have been using the “dry” method would healing.  You expose the cut or scrape to air and let it scab over – the scab then protects the wound.  But have you heard of “moist” healing?  It’s a relatively new concept that more and more hospitals are using in wound care. With moist healing the wound is covered and remains sealed in a protective but breathable dressing. This prevents a scab from forming, is often less painful because the nerve endings are protected by the moisture and enhances healing.

Tapes

Of course from time to time there are those wounds that a bandage or even a larger adhesive pad just won’t cover.  That’s when you need to pull out the gauze and tape.  Nexcare makes a full line of first aid tapes for every need. The sensitive skin tape is especially useful for the little ones.

Skin Crack Care

Now this is a cool product.  Nexcare Skin Crack Care is a liquid that you brush on to skin cracks to promote healing. This is perfect for people like my husband who’s work is hard on his hands. It’s also great on those painful paper cuts!

Acne Absorbing Covers

nexcare acneAnother neat and innovate product. These little pads act like a sponge to absorb pus and oil from those unsightly and sometimes painful pimples most of us get on occasion.  You simply apply the little pads over the pimple (on clean, dry skin) and literally watch it go to work.  The pads will turn white as it sucks out all that grossness. They are non drying and also help you resist that urge we all have to squeeze those zits.  We know that never ends well yet it’s so hard not to do it!

Win a Nexcare Prize Pack

Now that we’ve talked about cuts, scrapes and pimples and all of the innovative products Nexcare has to help you and your family quickly and safely heal I’m thrilled to tell you that one lucky reader will have the chance to win their very own Nexcare Prize Pack to try them out at home!
