Can I put concealer on my scabbing facial cut?

Can I put concealer on my scabbing facial cut?

Advanced skin: There is a product called advanced skin any brand would do - the one by johnson and johnson can help - this will be thicker than bandage and be left for 3 days on skin. The concealer would irritate the skin and make you look puffier.

Hey I am in the scabbing stage of my cold sores do I want to dry it on and put nothin on it or put abreeva stuff like on it?

Healing: Once the cold sore scabs, it is no longer infectious. It also means that abreva and other medications will not shorten the healing time by very much at this point keeping it most by using a chapstick, blistex, or other protective agent will help it heal better, just not a lot quicker. It will also feel better.

Will foban delays the time of scabbing of a wound on face? I want the wound to have scab as soon as possible. Soshould I use foban cream or do nothin?

Will foban delays the time of scabbing of a wound on face? I want the wound to have scab as soon as possible. Soshould I use foban cream or do nothin?

Wrong question: Throw away the foban. A scab is NOT desirable for best healing. Lubricate with vaseline or Aquaphor. Water is good for it. No antibiotic or antiseptic is of the slightest benefit except as lubrication. They may cause allergic reactions. Wounds heal better without any of them!!!!

Have had a raw skin/cut on my ear for a while. Nothing heals it. Just keeps scabbing, burning and bleeding. Anything I can do?

Have had a raw skin/cut on my ear for a while. Nothing heals it. Just keeps scabbing, burning and bleeding. Anything I can do?

Non-healing wound: If you have a spot on your ear that is not healing and keeps scabbing for a while, it should be checked out. I would recommend seeing a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or ENT doctor to check it out and rule out any other issue like underlying infection, etc. It may also need a biopsy.

Two weeks ago I had swelling of the eyelid. It went away 2-3 days later. Now the corner of my eye Keeps scabbing after each time Washing my face. Why!

Two weeks ago I had swelling of the eyelid. It went away 2-3 days later. Now the corner of my eye Keeps scabbing after each time Washing my face. Why!

One eyelid or two?: Unilateral swelling needs to be investigated. Look for underlying symptoms. Has your thyroid been checked? What other medical, eye, skin, environmental allergy conditions do you have? If it peels, have your doctor look at it and advise, refer to eye doctor too as corner scabbing isn't normal. They will view it under a slit lamp microscopy and diagnose it properly for treatment.

What to do to heal a crater caused by premature scabbing?

What to do to heal a crater caused by premature scabbing?

Superfast healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. The defect will fill in some as it heals.

I have big red flat cirlces on me that are scabbing, they have like looks like four holes on the outside and then a big hole? What kind of bug bite?

Must it be a bug?: How many of them? How large? Where? How long? You have no evidence to explain this and you have supplied insufficient clues. Itch? Pain? Pus? Blood? If you are in distress, see a Dr.

Manage long-term: You're an adult and you need to manage your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks (an alternative is retinoic acid), get with your personal physician for help. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle related disease that isn't pleasant to manage, but can be kept at bay until it remits on its own. I was able to stop using meds around age 50.

Many: Dry nose and scabbing can be due to excessive picking at nose, allergies, bacterial infections, and others. Avoid picking the nose, use saline nasal sprays, humidification, a small amount of vaseline in the nose and consider the use of intranasal antibiotics. You may need to see your pcp or ENT for evaluation. Humidification, humidification, humidification is the answer. Lots of saline spray!
