Dd had an awful case of infected CPox over the summer (almost hospitalised bad). She had a couple of big craters on her forehead.
That was in July.
6 months on and they've smoothed out loads. smile

I think young skin is very good at repairing itself so just make sure he doesn't scratch the scabs!

When my son cut his forehead we used Savlon healing gel until it had completely healed and then Bio Oil, and kept his fringe long to make sure they didn't catch the sun, which we were told would darken them. The scars were pink for several months and I didn't think the Bio Oil was working, but they did fade to almost invisible silvery lines after about nine months and now you'd never know they were there unless you were looking for them. He's quite proud of them though and still tells the story over two years later! (And it's not even a particularly good story - 'I was running in crocs and I fell over' hmm)

Your LO is very young and healthy children have great healing power. I wouldn't wory too much. I don't know the severity of the cut, it's likely it will heal incredibly well, with or without help. Make sure he eats well, helps everything.

Hope he's better soon!

Kelo-cote gel. It has worked wonders on my c-section scar.

The purest Aloe Vera gel you can find and time.

Kelocote silicon gel.

Scars make us who we are. I wouldn't worry about it

Heal gel. It was developed by Doctors for just this purpose. I haven't used it myself but have seen so many good things written about it that it might be worth a look. The very best to you and your little one!

If it's already scarred then you won't really be able to eliminate or reverse the scarring - it's permanent. If it was just a superficial scratch then he might get away with it but if it needed gluing then I should think it will scar. You can always try bio-oil though, to help the scar fade and be less noticeable, or ask your GP? And make sure your DS doesn't pick at the scab.

or even eliminating.

Best of luck OP

Bio oil is supposed to be good for illiminating scars.

thank you a lot for the advice, really appreciated.

We used mederma on DSD when she burnt herself. I think you can also get scar reducing plasters. I would wait till its healed before putting any creams on it though.
