ointment cotton swab / Portable ointment

ointment cotton swab

In the environment of the third world, people don't pay much attention to small wounds. But a fatal situation that those small wounds lead to big injuries, can happen, if they are constantly exposed to the dirty environment.

Therefore, an ointment cotton swab kit to heal small wounds instantly was developed for solving this problem. There is an ointment to apply once inside the cotton swab. When you press it, the ointment comes out, and you can apply it to the wound without using a hand, so it is sanitary. Also, it is portable, so you can apply it instantly, whenever you are wounded.
