Cuts & Scrapes Treatment


A child’s boundless energy often leads to painful injuries. Although it’s impossible to stop accidents from happening, Dakota Pediatrics provides the cut treatment St Paul children need when they’re hurt.

Cuts and scrapes are frightening, but treatable. Before taking your child in to the clinic, stop the bleeding with a clean towel or bandage. Carefully clean the wound with water and a washcloth. Apply an antibiotic if possible and cover the wound with a bandage. Most cuts can be treated same day in our clinic, including severe cuts that may require stitches or other wound treatments. However, for facial cuts requiring stitches, we typically refer those to a specialist to reduce the chance of scarring. When your child is hurt, bring them to the pediatric cut clinic St Paul has come to depend on.

Dakota Pediatrics has the resources and caring staff to make your child feel better. Give us a call when your child is in pain.
