Cuts, wounds, and burns are common woes young children encounter especially when travelling or on outdoor adventures. Even minor injuries are hard to deal with because they can be painful. Moreover, they are slow to heal as young ones can scrape them. The bigger concern is that they wouldn't let you apply antiseptic as most products sting. As a parent, it can be disconcerting to see the pain and discomfort of your child. Luckily, several natural remedies speed up wound healing, provided you use them regularly. Here are the ones you can rely on for healing kiddie-wounds.


The simplest remedy you can find at home is ice. It is easily available, so you need not struggle to look around for it during an emergency. Applying it directly to a cut can stop bleeding instantly, and it prevents blister formation in case of burns. The best part is that the numbing effect eases the pain quickly. It works for everyone, and your little one will actually like the idea.


Another wound-healing remedy you can easily find in your kitchen is turmeric. The golden spice has natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory action, so it works as well as any medicated ointment. It soothes the skin and heals the wound. You can apply it directly to the affected area or mix it with mustard oil to make a thick paste. A concoction of turmeric also offers healing benefits for internal injuries.

Manuka honey


Children love honey for its sweetness. But it helps with wound healing as well. Even better, try manuka honey for injuries as it has antifungal, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. It dehydrates and kills bacteria around open wounds. Applying manuka honey ointment to cuts and burns can provide immediate relief and accelerate the healing process. Every parent must add this healing aid to their first aid box.


Garlic is acclaimed for being a digestive aid as it combats infections caused by bacteria in food. But surprisingly, it is effective for wound healing as well. Applying fresh garlic paste on open cuts and wounds helps. Garlic has antimicrobial action that prevents external infections. It can even lower the pain and help stop bleeding. Not to mention, it accelerates the healing process.


Aloe Vera

Another wound healer you can find in your backyard is aloe vera. It works as a natural antibacterial and antimicrobial, and you can use it as a safe and natural alternative to topical ointments. It has phytochemicals that reduce inflammation for effective results. Apply aloe vera gel on cuts and wounds to see rapid healing. Make sure you use it daily on the affected area. Let it dry and rinse the wound for the best outcomes.

It is easy to deal with cuts, scrapes and burns naturally. Everything boils down to knowing the natural remedies that work and using them regularly. You can trust these remedies to heal the sensitive skin of your child. The best part is that you need not worry about side effects. Keep them at hand so that you can address minor injuries at home without stressing out.
