    Huh? Band-Aids, Curads, or any generic brand should do the trick.

    Scrub the crap outta the scrape to get any crud out, and let it air dry- YMMV

    is this a true laceration or an abrasion? If it is a laceration and you didn't get or need stitches a butterfly type to hold the skin closed is best. Use neosporine and keep the area covered with a waterproof bandaid. I like the 3-m type because they don't come off or let water in.

    Stop The Bleeding ASAP

    .....Once you can do that- bandages are not necessary. Your scab is actually nature's best bandage. It is proven that wounds without bandages or other kinds of skin dressings generally heal faster. Just make sure you apply lotion over the wound every night before going to bed. Before the scab is ready to come off, the wound area is gonna itch like a mofo. Lotion helps relieve the itching.
