School sores - ouch

They are a beastly thing to get on top of and often a real headache for parents. Also called Impetigo, they start looking like a blister and then crust over. They are very contagious and will spread easily over the skin. This month we have used HyperCal tincture to manage them and this has worked well. The tincture is a combination of Hypericum and Calendula. It is a natural anti-septic and assists with pain, itchiness and would healing. After bathing with HyperCal we have then applied Weleda HyperCal healing cream and then covered them. This prevented further spread and the sores are healing well. If you are wanting to stock HyperCal in your first aid kit email us at and we will get some on its way.
