My 19 month old daughter chewed her skin off on her thumb & caused a nasty infection brought her to the doctors & they sense no cause if concern but they did put her on a antibiotic cream I just don't know how to get it on her to keep the medicine & the band-aid on cuz she keeps taking it off & I'm afraid she is gonna either eat the medicine or wipe it off & her thumb won't get the help it needs

  • I would try to put the ointment on, wrap the entire thumb area with gauze and maybe wrap the gauze a few times around the palm of her hand so it does not come off easily. Good luck....

  • My 2 year old step son recently blew out the tip of his finger from climbing on a kitchen table we put the ointment on then bandeged it then took gauze and wrapped and taped it around his wrist via doctors orders
