Review of "Savlon Skin Healing Cream"
I recently got a tattoo (about 4 days ago) and the man who did my tattoo reccommended savlon to make sure that the area was kept clean and soft in order to avoid infection or fading of colour.
I have always used savlon on wounds, even down to the last graze, purely because ive had a bad experience with a skin infection caused by a burn and lets just say it wasn't very nice.
I bought a 100g tube of savlon crean which cost me about £3.50, savlon also do an antiseptic spray and a special spray for burns, but i bought the cream because i needed the moisture on the tattoo more than anything.
The cream is not scentless, it smells quite strongly of antiseptic, which i find reassuring!! And its not a completely terrible smell so that is not a disadvantage.
When previously i have used savlon on cuts and grazes, the wounds have healed quicly and without problems.My personal reccommendation is that if you do recieve any cuts or burns, it is always safe to use some sort of antiseptic cream, or even the spray, it is much easier for the wound to heal and if you recieve an infection then it will delay the healing process by far and may leave many scars.
The cream is a lot better to use on new cuts or burns, then i would say use the spray in the final stages of healing as you do not need to rub it in and possibly open up the wound again.
I hope this review has been helpful, i am not a doctor, but i know from past experience that this particular antiseptic is effective.
