Most active kids are prone to injuries, skin lesions and allergies. We cannot completely prevent them from moving around and playing to areas which are sometimes unsafe. Considering these facts, it’s important that we know basic first aid.

Some parents would take extra precaution against infection, especially on wounds. While there are available antiseptic wash in drugstores, wound cleansing using natural leaves is also a wise option.

The youngest in the family recently had a skin allergy. Itchiness gave him discomfort in sleeping. Timely, a box of Guavawash was sent to me to review. While this Guavawash does not necessarily cure the allergy, knowing it can cleanse and prevent skin infection I used it in bathing my little boy.

Allergy it is..

It soothes his skin and lessened itchiness for 3 days until the skin allergies disappeared. Using it is like pouring a sachet of coffee in a hot water, so simple. Smells like real guava leaves and its mild menthol effect gave him coolness he badly needs that time.

One sachet is enough for a day.
