Mercurochrome! Does anybody remember that stuff? It's not sold in the U.S. anymore but it used to be. Growing up it was used on open cuts and scrapes as a sort of antiseptic. It was never fun to have it put on because it stung worse than just about everything I can think of.
Today for open cuts and scrapes we use peroxide and for the most part it doesn't sting. We keep a jug of it in the bathroom cupboard and around our house it gets used on a regular bases.
Dear Lord, Thank you
