Tips for the accident prone

It’s been a long time since I posted anything wholly practical here, so here are two first aid tips I learned this summer that have miraculous properties.

raw egg whites Egg whites for burned skin: After you cool your burn under cold water, cover the skin with slightly beaten egg white. The egg white forms a healing protective seal. If the burn starts to hurt again, reapply the egg white. It really reduces pain, and burns heal quickly.

2nd skin

A bandaid called “2nd Skin” works amazingly well for deep cuts or blisters. I took a chunk out of the bottom of my foot while camping, and put on one of these bandaids. It sealed the wound, kept it clean, and kept me pain-free while it healed, which it did in just a few days. The brand I used was called “AquaHeal.” They have special ones for blisters, too. They are expensive, but worth it!

And that’s the first aid primer for the day!
