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. ...Read more

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!!!! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
