Summertime First Aid Kit

Updated: Mar 10


This recent string of days with the temperatures in the mid 90’s brings up at least one item that none would consider a blessing. Working outside now means you are walking around in sweat soaked clothes all day. The rubbing of said sweat soaked clothes against tender skin can bring on a phenomenon known as galding.



I’m not sure galding is a medical term, but mention it to anyone who works outside and they will know what you are talking about. Galding is a skin irritation that can be incapacitating in extreme cases.

Our cure for this is Balmex Diaper Rash Cream and Gold Bond Medicated Powder. Make sure you have a good supply of both before heading to work outside this summer.
