Liquid Bandages

Fingertips, behind knees, between toes—some areas make proper placement of adhesive bandages nearly impossible. For small, minor, tricky wounds, many people opt for liquid bandage products—which are typically brushed directly onto cuts. Once dry, liquid bandages shield wounds from dirt and germs. Also see topical antibiotics/antiseptics.

Multivitamin products can vary greatly in terms of which nutrients they contain and their amounts. Many Americans take multivitamins for various reasons—from wanting to round out their diet to possibly preventing chronic diseases. Exercising, eating a balanced diet, getting regular check-ups, and not smoking will also help keep you healthy. Also see children's multivitamins.

Vitamins—we all need them to grow and develop normally. We can usually obtain them through a balanced diet. Vitamin A, for example, can help prevent night blindness and is found in everything from carrots to milk. Vitamin D, found in egg yolks and liver, helps stave off rickets—the softening of bones. If your diet isn't vitamin-rich, your healthcare professional may recommend a supplement. Also see multivitamins.
