Tips for Treating Your Child's Scrapes, Splinters and Stings

by Kelsey Anderson

(FeatureSource) The pleasures of summer often bring with them small dangers or injuries, especially if you have children. Whether you're dealing with a scraped knee, a sliver in a finger or an insect bite, prepared parents can react to problems quickly and calmly.

"Even the most carefully reared and watched child will sometimes get hurt or sick," says Vicki Lansky, author of "Practical Parenting Tips" (Meadowbrook Press). "Knowing how to handle minor accidents give parents a sense of control."

Lansky advises that careful attention is the best treatment for any injury, especially insect bites. If a bee stings your child for the first time, watch for signs of an allergic reaction. These may include difficulty breathing, faintness or swelling around the eyes, mouth, tongue or penis. If these symptoms develop, call 911.

Lansky reminds parents that remaining calm during a crisis will help your child remain calm. Teach your child to express feelings of pain, but there's also a time to regain control.

She shares these tips for handling the bumps on the road or knee:


Freeze several small water-filled balloons that can be wrapped in a towel and applied to scrapes, bumps or bites. If you add rubbing alcohol to the water before freezing, the ice pack will be malleable.

Cover a scraped knee or elbow with the cutoff top of a sock. This will give extra protection to the bandage underneath while allowing for movement and play. A terry cloth wristband also works well.

Apply medicine on the gauze pad (not the sore) when it's necessary to apply something that stings.


Soak a splintered finger in warm water with antibacterial soap. Once the skin is softened, it will be easier to remove the sliver.

Ask your child to look the other way and sing a song, count or recite something while you gently prod the splinter with a sterile needle.

If you can't get a splinter out, leave it alone. Most splinters eventually work themselves to the surface. (See a doctor if one does not.)


Immediately apply a paste of baking soda and water to a bee sting reduces pain and welling.

Draw a bath containing baking soda or laundry starch and ask your itchy child to soak. Or go to the beach just for the sake of the cool, soothing water.

Apply white vinegar to bites in order to neutralize the sting of fire ants.
