OVER JUST ABOUT ANYTHING I FIND MYSELF TREATING BOO-BOOS ALL THE TIME. I FOUND THERE ARE SOME COMMON AILMENTS THAT WE TREAT THE WRONG WAY. HERE ARE SOME COMMON FIRST-AID MISTAKES. NOT ENOUGH WATER. I HAVE BEEN BURNED A COUPLE TIMES. THE FIRST REACTION IS TO PUT BURN CREAM ON IT. YOU SHOULD RUN THE BURN UNDER COOL WATER FOR 20 MINUTES OR MORE. EXPERTS SAY THE HEAT FROM A BURN CAN TRAVEL DEEP INTO YOUR SKIN AND DESTROY TISSUE. IF YOU TWIST YOUR ANKLE, REACH FOR ICE. USE THE HEAT FOR ISSUES LIKE BACK SPASMS. NEXT, TOUCHING INJURED EYES. DON’T DO THIS. WHEN SOMETHING IS IN YOUR EYE, THE IN THING IS TO RUB YOUR EYES. TRYING TO GET IT OUT CAN CAUSE MORE HARM. COVER THE I AND SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP. IF YOU GET A CHEMICAL, FLUSH THAT IMMEDIATELY.> STOP TILTING BACK. IF YOU HAVE A NOSEBLEED, STOP DOING THAT. THE BLOOD CAN DRAIN INTO YOUR THROAT AND OBSTRUCT BLEEDING.
