I found this photo the other day while looking for something else. Seeing the colorful band aids on my knees reminded me of skinned knees. It seems I was always falling down or falling off my bike or something. I thought I would have permanent scars from all the skinned knees, but over time they disappeared. My mom would put mercurochrome on our cuts and scrapes. It didn't sting like merthiolate did! I loved these colorful band aids. It seems we also had some with cartoon characters on them.
