First aid for simple cuts and scrapes.
Wash scrapes and minor cuts with soap and water. Apply triple antibiotic ointment and cover with a dry, sterile dressing or an adhesive bandage to help prevent infection and protect the wound. Clean and rebandage wounds each day.
First aid for blisters on the hand and foot.
To help prevent blisters on your feet when hiking, wear shoes or boots that fit well and that have been broken in. Change socks if they become sweaty or wet. Wearing work gloves can help lessen the chances of developing blisters on your hands when you are working outdoors.If you do develop a blister, don't pop it. Breaking a blister increases the chances of infection by bacteria. If a blister forms on your foot while hiking, apply a piece of moleskin cut slightly larger than the blistered area.
