My 5 yr old son got a cut on his face, about three weeks ago.
Took him to the ER (looked quite deep and medical centre advised for him to to hospital)
Anyway, at the hospital, they looked at it, and used that superglue stuff to bond it together (said it wasn't deep enough for
What is bothering me, is that they also applied this sticky adhesive gauze straight over it. Well, they told me that as it starts to peel, just snip off the side where its peeling.
Well, its only peeled a little bit, and i think there is a scab underneath as it feels slightly bumpy (but no pain or tenderness)
Is it best to leave this in place and let it fall off on its own, the sticky adhesive I think is called " Fixomull"??? It has been three weeks that its been on, but it does have little airation holes, that allows wound to breathe.
Do u think its best to take it off, or leave it on, till it naturally works its way off? I want to do whats best so he doesnt get a scar, or at least,a very minimal one, but i thoguht taking it off and allowing it to breathe would be the best way now after 3 wwks?? Becoz its on the face, I think the gauze is helping to keep the scab on, as if it comes off, methinks he will rub scab off.
I also was thinking that down the track, if it does scar, maybe the dermaroller would be good?
