The liquid bandage is an easy way to protect hard to cover areas, blisters, paper cuts, and other skin cracks. It comes with a no sting premoistened swab applicator. The single step application gives protection in a few minutes, with an invisible seal thats 100% waterproof, and keeps out dirt. Always make sure the area is clean and dry. All you do is tear the individual packet open, to remove the swab, then apply to the cut or wound. No need for other creams, single step does it all. These are used on small scrapes, and are great for children. It doesn't sting and they can apply it to the area that was hurt by themselves. Letting them help be the doctor, will take their minds off of the hurt area. When done with the swab discard, leaving the cut to seal for 2 minutes. By the time the cut has healed the Liquid Bandage will probably have worn off, if not a little alcohol will removed the bandage. I use this all the time for the grandchildren and myself. Highly recommended.
