When your child gets hurt suddenly and god forbid if she starts bleeding it is natural to get terrified.
Below mentioned is the modus-operandi you should follow to quickly deal with the situation.
Things to do if your kid gets hurt;
First of all RELAX, don’t panic. The child is anyways shocked and must be crying her hearts out. If you lose your calm too, the matter will get spoilt further.
Check for any foreign substances in the cut/wound, for e.g. any glass piece, stone, or any other thing which can cause irritation.
Put in lots of clean turmeric/ haldi powder on the wound.
What is Turmeric Powder?
Turmeric/Haldi powder is a bright yellow herbal powder made by dry grinding of mature turmeric rhizomes (underground stems). The key ingredient of Turmeric/Haldi is curcumin which has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. It is the best home medicine for any accidents which has caused bleeding. It forms a protective layer on the wound and stops blood loss.
Many doctors will guide you against using Haldi/Turmeric on the wounds stating that it may contain artificial colors and so on. Personally, i don’t agree with it. I have used it on my child’s wounds several times and I have never had any complaints. Turmeric/Haldi in fact speeds up the healing process too.
Please check that the haldi powder should be clean and pure it should not have any other spices like chilli powder or salt mixed with it, (In many households all these spices are usually kept together) otherwise it will spoil the wound and further increase the irritation.
After the wound has stopped bleeding, please see a doctor to be on a safer side.
This home remedy can very well be used for adults.
