Generally I’m quite relaxed about medical treatment for bumps and bruises.  We get a lot of bruises.  I think it’s genetic (plus I’m on warfarin so bruise more easily now), because as a child my mum always worried about all my leg bruises, and N’s the same.  My view is that it’s a sign of a great fun childhood, exploring with lots of physical exercise.

I think N’s been pretty lucky as well.  He has had quite a few accident reports at nursery over the 3 years he’s been there, but they’ve rarely been anything more than a bit of redness, or a bump on the head.  Very few cuts and scrapes.  And on the farm, he’s not come home covered in blood or with scraped knees.  So our medical kit at home is probably quite lacking in antiseptic items.

But I do now have a back-up in the form of Natrasan first aid spray. Natrasan kills 99.9999% of harmful germs including bacteria, fungi, viruses etc, meaning it’s got great disinfectant and antibacterial properties, and perfect for helping heal grazes, cuts and wounds, de-odorising, treating stings or athletes foot.  It contains Hydrochlorous acid, a really mild acid that kills off pathogens.

Natrasan first aid spray review and comp

Natrasan is safe for humans, animals and the environment, making it good for family health, plus it’s multi-use.  It can be used to clean worksurfaces – just spray directly on or onto a cloth and wipe.  Or by spraying onto spots and acne to help clear them up.  I’ve not yet tried that, but reckon it’s a great idea – the spray isn’t too wild or wide reaching, so there shouldn’t be much danger of getting it in my eyes.

I’ve used it so far on a mystery scratch I have on my arm.  It didn’t sting, and didn’t dribble wet down my arm.  The scratch seemed to heal quicker than it might have done and it’s not really scabbed either, just healed up.  I’m planning to try it on a scratch N came home with yesterday too.  The fact it didn’t sting going on, means it should be good for using on him too.

Natrasan is available in a spray format, a 200ml pump bottle and can be bought for around £10.  However, I have a spray to giveaway.  Just answer the question in the comments, go back to the rafflecopter widget to confirm you’ve entered, and you’re in the draw.

  12. Gloria Camm

    My daughter fell over at primary school, and her little finger bent right back. Obviously we had to go to hospital, and the doctor put it back in place. Quite an ordeal though 🙁

  13. Helen Allan

    My youngest son fell off his bike (face first). Teeth missing, cuts and bruises all over, especially on his chin. Awful. So much blood. The hardest part was trying not to show my own distress and it frightens them so much more than they already are.

  14. Hannah Igoe

    My son landed in an awkward position on hid foot and then couldn’t walk on it!

  15. Patricia Fraser

    My son fell off a stool at my sister in laws house, hit his head on a glass tv unit – was very lucky not to split his head open but has a massive bruise and bump and put his teeth though his lip, he was only 2 and he still has the scar yet.

  16. Jo-Anne Holton

  21. Katie Robertson

  22. Barbara Handley

    My seven month old granddaughter broke her femur when her big sister put her on the top bunk and she rolled off.

  23. My daughter is a very cautious child so we haven’t had any serious accidents yet. The worst was probably when she first started walking. She toddled into the bathroom, tripped over her own feet and smacked into the corner of the bath which resulted in a split lip.

  24. Minnie Rose

    Shutting a heavy door on her fingers 🙁 – wanted to take the pain away for her x

  39. Stacey C

    My son fell & hit his nose on my TV stand, he hit his nose on a sharp handle on one of the draws & the cut was so deep you could see the cartilage! It was horrific, there was so much blood 🙁 I felt so bad because the handles on the stand had never even crossed my mind as a danger at the time 🙁 xx

  40. melanie shah

  47. Elizabeth Hinds

    I’ve been so lucky so far (touch wood!), my daughters haven’t really had any accidents at all yet. Nothing like me as I was constantly in and out of A+E as a child!

  48. Sarah Griffiths

    A cut on the head, rather than stitching it tho the doctor cleverly used her hair, knotting it to hold the cut together

  49. Sharon Mclauchlan

    nothing yet byt have a nearly 5 month year old

  50. Karen Laing

    It was actually my grand-daughter,she tripped and fell against a low marble table.She was only two and there was blood everywhere and her two front teeth were missing.We arrived at casualty where she was x-rayed but no sign of having swallowed the teeth.The consultant didn’t want to distress her any further as there was too much trauma and swelling.We went back the following week and discovered her two front teeth had been pushed right back into the gum.They did eventually come down again but were rather squint and discoloured.I hope I never see anything like that again,the amount of blood and the distress of my little grand-daughter,it was really dreadful x
