  • Band aid should be off. Oozy stuff is WBC....her body is healing her scrape

  • This is normal. Take the bandaid of and clean it again and put some Neosporin on it and put a clean Band-Aid on.

  • Ditto the others, haha. Just keep an eye on it and keep it clean, but it seems par the course :)

    You are so funny. I mean I would be scared to death if the Westboro Baptist Church was oozing out of my kids knee.

    Mine were in the dirt during the day so bandaid on and off at night for air to help it scab over.

  • Take the band aid off. I never believed in them myself. At least not for long periods of time.  


    Clean the wound,  then put neosporin

  • If you want to cover it,so nothing gets in there,use a gauze pad and tape,and "tent' it so it can breathe. Neosporin too

  • What Prissy said!! You can cover it at night with some neosporin to protect your sheets. But as long as it's fairly clear she's fine. DO NOT USE PEROXIDE to clean it... SOAP and WATER is BEST!!! Seriously!!!
