...Do You Got A Boo-Boo?...

Has the bandage made it all better? Until you have to pull the darn thing off, that is. Well here are a couple of things I learned to help you remove adhesive bandages painlessly. The first two tips are courtesy of a school nurse, and the last one is from Ed Watson, corporate spokesman for Johnson & Johnson.

* Use a tiny pair of scissors to separate the bandage part from the adhesive sections. Pull it gently away from your scrape. Then remove the adhesive strips.

* If your scab is stuck to the bandage, soak the area in a mixture of warm water and salt- about a teaspoon of salt to a gallon of water. Have patience. The dressing will eventually let go.

* If the bandage is stuck on your forearm, leg, or chest hair, pull in the direction of hair growth, says Watson. Use a cotton swab saturated in baby oil or rubbing alcohol to moisten the adhesive fully before pulling away from skin.

I truly hope these tips help. When it comes to boo-boo's and bandages theres not much else you can do.
