The shelves of drugstores and supermarkets are loaded with a variety of bandages and other first aid items, so it’s surprising how many people still get infections from untreated wounds. Small cuts and abrasions can be the start of something big, so they shouldn’t be ignored. They require immediate attention.

It's important to keep your cuts clean and covered.

It’s hard to visualize the number of germs, some of them deadly, that are often on our skin and on the things we work with. These germs are just waiting to find an opening in the skin to enter the body and start trouble. When cuts occur, treat them right away. Don’t wait until break time or until you get home. Time is really an important factor.
