Never leave your wounds untreated and uncovered. Minor scratches and skin issues can be solved easily by using a basic antiseptic cream. At the same time, choose such a medication based on the problem you are trying to solve. Some products in this range are formulated for a specific purpose. For example, one type of cream may be better in healing the wounds while another may be better in treating minor skin issues.
Consult your doctor before using such a medication if you are allergic to any particular ingredient used to make such a cream. This consultation is recommended even when you are on medication. Pregnant and breast-feeding women should consult their doctor before applying any such cream on their skin. Generic products in this range can be used by anyone for most common skin problems like scratches, cracked and chipped skin, and other issues. Use the product only as instructed by its manufacturer.
