As a mother of a very active toddler and a wife to a very accident prone husband, I have to keep my first aid kit stocked incase anything should happen. I guess you could say that I’m one of those germ phobic parents that want to keep my son healthy and make sure no cuts or scrapes don’t turn infected, so I’m constantly checking out new products to add to my first aid kit and I’ve recently found a new product that is a must-have for every first aid kit, StaphAseptic® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Gel!
About StaphAseptic® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Gel (Taken From Website):
Protection from skin infections...
Applied to minor cuts, scrapes and abrasions, StaphAseptic® can help prevent skin infections caused by bacteria such as MRSA, staph, and other germs, and contains Lidocaine for effective pain relief.
StaphAseptic is available in a 2 oz. tube or single use packets.
Use StaphAseptic as part of a complete staph prevention program to help protect you and your family from skin infections.
Staph Prevention Program:
Treat and cover wounds
Don't share personal items (like towels)
Shower after physical activity
Properly clean gear and equipment
Keep hands clean
Consult your physician for all active wounds
If you think you may have a skin infection, contact your physician immediately. Staph bacteria, including MRSA, can cause skin infections that may look like a pimple, boil, or ingrown hair and can be red, swollen, painful, or have pus and other drainage. Serious infections may cause pneumonia, bloodstream infections, or even death.

We were sent a 2oz tube of StaphAseptic for review and I’m very happy to have it in my first aid kit. I have a friend that just recently recovered from Staph on the back of her leg and I’ll be the first to tell you this stuff is nasty, and I will take every precaution to keep it away from my family! So may say I’m a nut when it comes to people getting injured around me, but growing up with my dad in the construction industry I’ve seen some pretty ugly cuts and things so I want to be prepared just incase!
I’m happy to report that I’ve not had to use the StaphAsceptic but maybe less then a handful of times, and most of them was on my husband while working on his truck, but never the less I’m very happy to have it on hand! I’m very pleased with the results we got from using StaphAsceptic vs. the other brand we were using, even with the other brand there was times that my husbands cuts have gotten infected after using it regularly, but with StaphAsceptic we haven’t had an infected cut or scrap since starting to use it.
I’m a true believer in StaphAsceptic and will continue to use it and keep it stocked in my first aid kits and medicine cabinet! I really recommend everyone add it to their first aid kit because Staph is no joke and if you can do something to prevent it why not?
