Dry eyes from computer = Close drapes and have side lights on, Sit 24 inches away from screen and have screen 10-15 degrees below your eyes
try this exercise: Every 20 minutes, blink 10 times by closing your eyes as if falling asleep (very slowly). This will help rewet your eyes. Last resort re-wetting eye drops (Artificial Tears)
CUTS AND BURNS
Cuts = clean your hands then wash cut, put pressure stop bleeding then apply the antibiotic cream put bandaid over then change it/clean every day. If it starts getting red streaks, greenish yellow pus, swelling, pain, fever go see nurse see if infected.
BURNS - run cool water for 5 minutes (no ice), put antibiotic ointment (spray better) then loosely wrap with gauze, take Tylenol or ibuprofen. Go to nurse if electrical burn, charred, has no feeling, any blistering especially if on hands, feet, face.
