Common cuts and lacerations can easily become infected. You can help prevent infection using the simple Clean, Apply, Cover process.
Infections in cuts and lacerations can often come from the hands. Before attending to a cut or laceration, make sure to clean your hands with an alcohol prep pad. Medicare Alcohol Prep Pads have a 99% alcohol content to clear germs away from your hands before you attend to a cut or laceration.
Applying a non-alcohol solution, spray, cream or wipe to a cut or laceration before covering with a plaster or dressing can help ward off infection, encourage healing and reduce scarring. Medicare Alcohol-Free Cleansing Wipes are ideal for this purpose as they are gentle on skin and are no-sting.
Covering a cut with a sterile dressing or plaster after cleaning it can ward off infection and promote healing. The Medicare Waterproof Plaster range are hypoallergenic and allow the wound to ventilate, and their skin-friendly adhesive won't irritate the skin.
