How to help a facial wound heal?
Posted March 30th, 2012 by emily1234
Hi everyone...this is my first post. I'm so grateful for a community of people who are going through what I am. I have a huge wound in the middle of my eyebrows...right above my nose. It started as a spot and has gotten so big. I have been trying to heal it for a week- not going out, not putting makeup on it, not touching it. I was doing so well and for some reason last night I picked it and now its worse than ever before. It is really red raw and pretty big- it looks like I've hit my head on a wall or something?! I've stopped it weeping so its getting to be kind of crusty (ergh) and I have work for the next week so will have to put make up on it. Do any of you know any methods to help it heal better, bearing in mind I'll have to put make up on it? I have found that facial abrasions heal alot quicker than anywhere else. Many thanks! ALSO while I'm here I have a tip which I'm sure has been mentioned before on the forum. If you have an issue with spots/healing wounds not being 'flat', then a good tip is to use a nail file or emery board VERY lightly to make it smooth. You shouldn't do it too hard/too much as itll end up breaking the skin and making it weep, but if you do it very lightly it does help a lot.
