If you’re not prone to falling and scratching yourself on random things, it’s likely that you don’t own Neosporin ointment. Have no fear! If you accidentally trip, fall, and need to clean the resulting cut, use some VapoRub as a replacement.

Spread a thin layer around the wound to speed up the healing process. The serum will also help protect against germs and bacteria. Be sure not to put it on any open wound, though!
