Things are a little busy around here as we just added a Little Mister to our family so the heavily researched and grammatically perfect posts will have to wait for another day.
In the meantime, I saw a snippet on TV the other day (don't judge me) that I thought was worth passing on. (FYI It is something I learned in school but I forget not everyone knows these things until I hear them on television.) Anyhoo, did you know more than 10% of people are allergic to one of the ingredients in "triple antibiotic creams" (think Neosporin)? That means it can often make wounds WORSE.
But don't you need that magic ointment? Short answer: not really. For any wounds a sensible person would treat at home a good cleaning regimen with soap and water along with petroleum jelly and good clean bandages will get you healed up in no time. (The petroleum prevents the edges of the wound from drying out and helps the healing process along.)
