Health Matters

In your opinion, which of the following is better for treating a cut; hydrogen peroxide, honey, iodine, Neosporin, or Spam? Read on for the answer, although if you picked Spam, then just go away. When we get cut, we would like three things to happen. We want to prevent infection, stop the bleeding, and heal the wound. Most cuts don’t bleed much. They will stop on their own eventually. They also will eventually heal if we leave them alone long enough. The biggest risk posed by most wounds is infection. With some of the more vicious bugs around like MRSA (resistant staph) the fear of infection is understandable. That’s why people like to goober all kinds of creams and ointments on their cuts.
