If you all have kids anything like mine, then you are constantly having to patch up skinned knees, deal with scrapes & cuts, and kissing boo~boos to make it all feel better! I swear my kids are the most clumsy kids on earth, my daughter alone has busted her lip over 10 times and she is only 8, she bloodied them twice before she was a year old!
Because of the nature of my kids, I have to always make sure I have plenty of band-aids and a stock of first aid ointments...so when I was given the opportunity to review StaphAseptic first aid antiseptic/pain relieving gel, I was happy to be reviewing a product that I KNEW was going to get used....a LOT.
So far I've used StaphAseptic in place of Neosporin, I've put it on bug bites to take the pain and itch away, and it has worked wonderfully for that! Ive also put it on a couple skinned knees, a cut open finger, a scraped cheek and on a minor burn I got on my hand while cooking.
One thing I'm always worried about is my children getting hurt and then developing a nasty infection like MRSA (antibiotic resistant staph) which can be very very serious for those who contract it, since it is resistant to antibiotics it can be terribly hard to get rid of...so I want to be as preventative as possible to ensure this is something my kids never have to deal with, so it made me feel very good to know that StaphAseptic kills 99.9% of MRSA! StaphASeptic is NOT a cure for MRSA but it can be a wonderful way to try and prevent it, which is another reason I really love the product...it is yet another tool in my arsenal along side good ole soap and water, to help keep my kids infection free when they get hurt! and speaking of infection prevention, I want to share with you all some prevention tips in regards to staph...

I cant say enough good things about this product! It took the itch out of the bug bites, it took the sting and pain out of my burn and it really helped those cuts and scrapes and it gave me the peace of mind that it was helping prevent infections for myself and my family!
