Children are exposed to different types of wounds and scrapes because of their daily activities. Even in the most harmless-looking places, no matter how hard parents try to protect them, they can still get hurt.
As a first time Mom, I am also "paranoid" if my daughter has wounds. I will rather bring her to the doctor as soon as we can in order to prevent infections. True enough, my baby's pedia always recommend Fucidin. It is always part of our first aid kit. By that, I'm also a #FucidinMom! ^_^
Last May 2, Mommy Bloggers and other media friends, had an intimate gathering as we share our experiences on children, wounds and bacteria infections.
It was hosted by a Fucidin Mom, Ms. Kris Aquino. She goes full force against wound infection with Fucidin®. Kris is well known as a celebrity mother who cares for her sons’ health and well being.
“I have two boys and when they get a cut or a wound, I clean it with soap and water for 15 seconds. Then, I apply Fucidin® agad,” she says. “Fucidin® is part of our wound care kit!”
Present in the event are other Fucidin Moms like Mommy Frances of Topaz Horizon, Dr. Empress Carlo-Villapando and Ms. Gitte Aabo (President and CEO of Leo Pharma)
Here are some clips from the event. Watch it to know more about #FucidinMoms and Fucidin:
Moms need to make sure the wound doesn’t get infected. Infection occurs when bacteria enters the wound through a break on one’s skin. Bacteria may spread and lead to more serious diseases.
Usually, the immediate response is to wash a wound well with soap and water. But cleaning may not be enough. It is also essential to apply a topical antibiotic like Fucidin® at the first sign of wound infection.
