Hi my daughter used a mr clean magic eraser on her arm. She now has a red patch where she scrubbed. How should I treat it?

Skin abrasion: As Proctor and Gamble published, wash your daughter's arm with plenty of cool water. It is made with melamine, a mild abrasive like sandpaper. Your daughter now has an area of abrasion on her arm. You may apply OTC antibiotic ointment and cover it with a breathable sterile dressing.
