Have you heard about cooling patches? They’re a safe and natural way to relieve pain and discomfort.
What we love about them is their versatility. You can use them on adults and children alike, for all kinds of conditions.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 uses for cooling patches and find out more about this natural soother and pain-reliever.
1. Relieve the symptoms of fever
If your child has a fever, a cooling patch for fever is an easy way to get their temperature down. Simply stick it onto your child’s forehead, where it can be worn for hours at a time.
The special gel inside the patch draws heat away from your little one, bringing welcome relief. The patch itself is designed to not heat up over use, so it’s just as effective after a few hours as it is at the beginning of the session.
If you’re using a cooling patch for baby, then you can cut it down to just the right size. Adults can use cooling patches for fever too, making them perfect for all the family.
The patch can be easily and painlessly removed when you’re done, which means they’re great for sensitive skin.
Children frequently suffer from fevers, so why not invest in a non-invasive infrared thermometer too so that you can keep track next time your child has a temperature?
2. Help skin complaints
Cooling patches can help with a wide range of skin concerns. If you have a minor burn, apply running tepid water for 20 minutes then apply a cooling patch for an effective way to soothe the skin.
Cooling patches for sunburn are also good for soothing the affected area and providing relief.
They can also be used for many types of rashes, and a cooling patch works well for itchy skin that has no visible redness.
It’s a good idea to keep some cooling patches in your family first aid kit so they are always on hand for minor skin issues.
But remember to seek medical attention if you have any concerns about a burn, rash or skin condition.
3. Soothe headaches and migraines
Use a cooling patch for a headache and benefit from hours of relief. They’re a natural soother for all types of headaches, from persistent tension headaches and headaches triggered by hormones through to migraines.
For people who suffer from frequent headaches, cooling patches are a lifesaver. They’re a natural remedy with no side effects, so you can use them as often as you like.
Using cooling patches also means that you don’t have to rely on medication to relieve your symptoms. This is useful if you have other conditions that require drugs and will stop you from taking too many or the wrong combination.
It’s also worth knowing that over-using medication for headaches can actually trigger them. This makes natural remedies like cooling patches an attractive alternative to drugs.
4. Help to bring down swelling after knocks
If you’ve got active kids who are prone to falling over or hurting themselves while playing, cooling patches will be your saviour. Apply a cooling patch to swelling or bruising for soothing, effective relief.
Cooling patches are also fantastic for anyone who enjoys sports and outdoor activities and is at risk of injuries. They’re great for sprains and strains, as well as reducing the swelling that comes with many different types of injury.
Pack cooling patches in your sports kit or in your car if you’re planning a family day out so you can easily grab one in the event of a minor accident or injury.
5. Muscular aches and pains
Cooling patches are an effective way to get relief from all sorts of aches and pains. You can use them for conditions like:
- Back pain
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Repetitive strain injury
- Sports injuries
- Strained muscles
In fact, you can use cooling patches for these and many other types of musculoskeletal pains for gentle, natural relief.
They can also be used if you’ve been advised to try alternate hot and cold therapy on an injury. The cooling patch will reduce inflammation while a warm pack or hot water bottle will stop cramping and help blood flow to the affected area.
