You’re there at every practice and game cheering on your little athlete from the sidelines. It also means you see each tumble, bump, or bruise that inevitably happens. Being prepared for these injuries is essential to a quick recovery. During the busy fall sports season, make sure you’re ready with a field first aid kit for frequent emergencies, injuries, or illnesses that happen on the field.
Cuts and Scrapes
Minor wounds and injuries to skin can happen in any sport. Equip your kit with essentials like band-aids and bandages, gauze, tweezers, and antiseptic wipes. You’ll also want a skin care product like Calendula Cream or Ointment to apply to the affected area. Made from garden marigolds, these topicals promote the healing of skin irritations like cuts, scrapes, and turf burn.*
Sprains, Strains, and Sore Feet
If you’re a sports mom, then you’re no stranger to strains, sprains, and sore feet. So don’t forget to stash some Arnicare products, like Arnicare Cream or FootCare for on-the-spot treatment of pain, swelling, and bruises, or foot and ankle pain.* These soothing, moisturizing formulas are ideal for massage and free of fragrances and dyes. Hot compresses or ice packs are also excellent to have handy but make sure to wait five minutes after using them before you apply Arnicare.
Hay Fever and Allergies
For children with seasonal allergies, RhinAllergy can help make competing in outdoor sports more enjoyable. This non-drowsy medicine relieves symptoms of hay fever and other upper respiratory allergies such as itchy, watery, burning, and irritated eyes; sneezing; runny nose; and itchy throat and nose.* It’s available in slightly sweet melt-away pellets and unflavored quick-dissolving tablets for children ages 2 and older.
