Minor Injuries Overview
Children’s days are filled with running, jumping, bicycling, sports, and other fun activities that keep them active and “on-the-go” from morning until night. Along with the fun comes an occasional cut, bruise, or tumble. Luckily, most of these injuries are not serious. They can be handled with some simple first-aid interventions at home. However, there are times when a healthcare provider’s care is needed.
Specific treatment for skin wounds and injuries will be determined by your child’s healthcare provider. In general, call your child’s healthcare provider for skin injuries that are:
Bleeding heavily and do not stop after five to 10 minutes of direct pressure
Deep or longer than 1/2 inch
Located close to the eye
Large cuts on the face
Caused by a puncture wound or dirty or rusty object
Embedded with debris such as dirt, stones, or gravel
Ragged or have separated edges
Caused by an animal or human bite
Showing signs of infection. These include increased warmth, redness, swelling, or drainage
Also call your child’s healthcare provider if:
Your child has not had a tetanus vaccine within the past five years, or if you are unsure when your child’s last tetanus shot was given.
You are concerned about the wound or have any questions.
