 Cuts, scrapes & scratches

The one, most recommended treatment for small injuries is simple, and is just like treating a small 'human' cut: using Neosporin* ointment!
(*the proprietary name for the triple antibiotic ointment containing neomycin, bacitracin zinc and polymyxin B)

It has been used it with considerable success in treating superficial injuries and infections. It stays on well under wet conditions. The generic product is much cheaper (Triple Antibiotic Ointment). It is effective against gram-negative bacteria, which predominate in most foggy infections. Just make sure the affected area is dry before applying to get the best result.

But remember, even the smallest of cuts can get easily infected in such warm moist conditions.  And make sure you keep the frog extra clean if he has an injury.
