Acting quickly after an accident can help reduce the risk of infection and help provide relief from pain – whether it be a minor burn, cut, graze or insect bite. These types of wounds can happen on any part of the body and most can be looked after with standard first aid1

As well as compress dressings, adhesive bandages, rolled bandages, gauze, and eye wash, a well-stocked first aid kit should include a topical antiseptic cream1, such as SOOV Cream. Antiseptic can help reduce the growth of microorganisms on the surface of the skin, to help minimise the risk of infection2.

A bona fide multi-tasker, SOOV Cream is an antiseptic pain-relief cream that can aid in the relief of cuts, grazes, minor burns, scalds and sunburn, as well as haemorrhoids. It contains lignocaine hydrochloride, which helps to numb the affected area to help provide fast pain relief. It also contains two different antiseptics (cetrimide, and chlorhexidine gluconate) to help prevent and reduce bacteria that can lead to an infection3.

Before taking care of any wound, you should wash your hands to help minimise the risk of infection. Then apply the SOOV Cream. SOOV Cream’s soft cream base makes it easy to apply, which is great news for tender and sore skin. Be sure to keep your dressing clean by changing it at least once a day, or whenever it becomes dirty or wet.

Severe burns, cuts and grazes; and deeper lacerations may need medical attention so see your doctor.

Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
