Safeskin First Aid Antibacterial Gel to try out. The thing that interested me about this gel is that is provides a barrier to MRSA, and offers 48 hours of antibacterial protection.
When I came home from the hospital after Lydia's birth, I brought home a staph infection. That infection ended up leaving a scar on my hand, and I unknowingly infected Lydia because it was misdiagnosed at first. It took almost a year before we were finally rid of the staph infection completely.
Because of that experience, I'm always careful to wash the kids' cuts and protect them with anti-bacterial gel. I really like the fact that this gel from Kimberly Clark has been tested and proven effective against MRSA (an especially virulent form of the staph bacteria.)
Within a day of receiving the gel, I managed to cut my finger. I reached for this new tube and was pleased to note that it was a clear gel, with no scent. I followed the instructions on the packaging by putting the gel on the cut and the surrounding area and then covering with a bandage. A couple days later, the skin was healed nicely.
Another thing I like about this gel is that it is made in the USA. You know that I love to purchase things that are made locally, or at least in the US.
If you want to try it out, you can print a coupon from Coupons.com for $1 off a tube that is good at select Wal-Mart stores. You can find more information on their Facebook page as well.
