Brave Soldier Antiseptic Healing Ointment for Athletes

Brave Soldier Mission StatementTHIS STUFF WORKS!

You are a trike pilot, an adventurer, a cut above the common sedentary human. You get out there with your trike, exploring the open roads and unknown, taking the chances others will not. In this championship territory, one finds the risk of occasional injury a possibility. Here is where time-tested Brave Soldier Antiseptic Healing Ointment comes to the rescue!

Just like the nifty and convenient products to keep your bod clean while in the remotest corners of Planet Earth, there exist products that take care of other necessities in the outback while on a trike tour. Let’s say you are getting off your trike for a break from pedaling, and in your state of elated tricycle stupor, you whack your shin on the SPD pedal while dismounting. Here comes the blood. Or, you’re heading down that mountain pass at break-neck speed using pedal straps instead of cleats (bad idea), and your sockless sandaled foot falls to the asphalt, quickly sanding off the nails of three toes, as well as sizable chunks of former toe skin. Not to worry! You don’t need a doctor! Why?

Consider this: You’re a triker, of course, and trikers are tough! No, just joshing. You hurt like everyone else, but since you are a self-reliant trike pilot who has thought of everything, you expediently whip out your Brave Soldier brand first aid products from your right pannier and get to work on the doctoring end of things. Trike pilots learn many things in their travels, one of which is how to heal thyself on the road. Doctors … who needs ‘em? Unless of course, they happen to be a tadpole triking doctor, which is a different story!

    Hey Steve, best you stick to triking, medicine just isn’t your field.

  2. Fortunately, I happen to rarely have any need of medicine, thus my advanced reptilian brain suffices for those minor injuries where I can “doctor” myself. Carrying an antiseptic ointment in a backpack or cycling pannier works for me in situations where I am far from modern expected conveniences. To overlook this minimal advice for cyclists would be side-stepping my gifted duties as the supreme triking demigod, and bring down the wrath of the higher triangular skypowers that invisibly control our triking ways of existence. Therefore, I command all able bodied and level headed tricycular commandos to always have a tube of Brave Soldier at the ready, for those unexpected adventure-related mishaps! Excuse me now, I must go outside and wash off my boots …

  3. Brave Soldier sounds like a wonderful product. Let me tell you about a product that I know from experience works.
    I took a nasty chunk of flesh from my forearm while trying to remove the seats from the back of my minivan four days ago. Being a bleeder, I wrapped a gauze pad around it with tape for a couple of hours. Then when I went to check it out, the bleeding started again.
    I went to CVS where the pharmacist recommended a product called Wound Seal. I followed the directions by washing the area thoroughly, then sprinkling the Wound Seal powder liberally over the area. Then you press over the wound for 30 seconds. The bleeding stopped immediately and in a few minutes the powder hardened to form like a scab.
    You don’t have to cover it with a bandage. It’s amazing. you can get it wet in about an hour. I took a shower the next day with no problem.
    It’s just like a real scab that will fall off naturally in time. It looks bad, but I don’t care. I am definitely going to keep some Wound Care in my first aid kit when I ride my trike.
