  • Bruise: ice the area, then apply arnica gel
  • Burn: run room-temperature water over the wound, then apply a tulle gras dressing and take a dose of calendula
  • Bite: carefully pull out the stinger, disinfect, then apply ice

Women, men, children: we all are alike! Now that we have sunny days, we want to run everywhere, jump on a bike, put on roller skates, climb the slightest hill. In short, we want to live our adventurous life. But that does not always end the way we like. The result are cuts and scrapes, bumps and bruises and, sprained hands, legs, arms, and feet. And above all, do not think you do not risk anything by lying quietly on your deckchair. You can get bitten by an insect or sunburnt. So we must quickly relieve all these little sores which, we must admit, are rarely very bad.
