As usual, wash the affected area w/anti-bacterial soap (Dial and/or Safeguard) and use a red washcloth to soothe the child from seeing the blood if you are treating a child. Otherwise, coat the abrasion with a good, solid coat of Vaseline (no sting) and ironically, it works for more than aiding dry skin. Don't use one of those liquid skin concoctions as they will sting like all you-know-what. In fact, all of those brands of the liquid bandages will bring a grown man to tears from a simple blister to a skin crack.
