Hello
Can anyone give me any ideas how I can get my nearly 3 year old to keep a plaster on? She keeps picking a wound from an insect bite, and it's getting worse and worse. We've tried lots of different plasters and she won't have any of them, and lots of creams to try to stop the itching and get it to heal too. I'm worried it's going to get infected and scar soon.
Thanks!
