Whether biking through town on your bright blue Schwinn, tearing up the mountains on your Trek Fuel, or just riding through the neighborhood on a bike with freshly removed training wheels, at some point that graceful aerodynamic ride will falter, and you’ll get stuck with a skinned knee. No matter your biking style, CUROXEN’s all-natural formula will be there to get you back in cycling shape.
The Dangers of an Untreated Skinned Knee
Minor wounds are pretty good about healing themselves (save for a few underlying health issues that may slow the process like diabetes, autoimmune diseases), so there’s a collective tendency to let nature- and the body- do all the work. While often times a body doesn’t need help healing itself, it does need defense against bacteria and germs. With a direct line to the bloodstream through open skin, wounds are a battleground for 100’s if not 1000’s of invaders. Leaving a wound untreated could have disastrous results ranging from the annoyance of a minor infection to the scary reality of sepsis, staph, and even superbugs like MRSA. That’s why proper care and maintenance of a skinned knee should be priority numero uno.
How to Treat a Skinned Knee
Once safely at home, follow these steps to ensure that your skinned knee’s only lasting effect is a gnarly scar.
- Stop the bleeding by applying pressure to the knee
- Rinse the area to get rid of all the blood, dirt, and debris currently in and around the wound
- Use a cleaning agent- preferably soap and water over hydrogen peroxide- to prevent infection
- Apply the CUROXEN that best fits your needs whether original, CUROXEN with Arnica for Pain, or CUROXEN with Vitamin D for Kids
- Cover the wound and change the dressing daily
- Check for signs of infection
Signs of infection
Seek medical attention if you experience the following
- Pus that is yellow or green in nature
- Swelling or pain stemming from the wound
Skinned knees are always a high probability when on two wheels, so CUROXEN is there to make sure you can keep trucking even after you test the limits of gravity.
