Down to the beach: But watch out for your feet

When summer comes, it’s time to get down to the beach or swimming lake. It's good to keep to a few rules so that your fun is not suddenly interrupted by a sharp stone or a piece of broken glass.

Bathing shoes offer protection

Most people enjoy walking barefoot along the beach or at the lakeside. Unfortunately this is quite dangerous: Stones, broken glass, bottle tops or other sharp objects can be hidden in the sand, as well as below the water. So it’s always a good idea to wear bathing shoes. They do not affect your swimming, but can prevent unpleasant and painful injuries.

Be considerate

It should really be a matter of course, but some people forget and others simply do not care. The best way to prevent cuts is to dispose of bottles and other litter properly. This keeps the beach clean and no one risks suffering any injury.

Clean cut wounds to prevent infection and scarring

If you step onto a piece of broken glass or a sharp stone, the cut is not only very painful, but usually also contaminated with sand or seawater. Generally these wounds bleed quite strongly so that much of the contamination is flushed out. Nevertheless, you should clean the injury thoroughly and dress it properly to prevent infection and inflammation. As soon as the wound is closed the follow-up care with Contractubex® can start: Apply the scar gel regularly so that the wound heals completely and no ugly scar can form.
