Have open gash about 1.5cm long on face. Don't think need stitches. Keep it moist with Vaseline until body heals, or let it dry and scab over quickly?
Need more info: How deep is the wound.? How old is the wound? Where is it located? Must keep the wound clean. To minimize visible scarring need to see a doctor to see if it can be closed with fine sutures or surgical glue. If it is more than 24-48 hrs old then may have to allow to close on its own.

Cut my finger half an inch deep. much blood, cant afford stitches. sprayed liquid bandaid on it, cant wash because excrutiating. will it heal and how long???
Finger cut: A hand cut 1/2 deep is pretty substantial, especially if it was on the fingers. You could have damaged a nerve, vessels, or tendons. Though, you state you can't afford an ER visit, I would suggest you still go. Especially if you have any numbness of the fingers or lack full range of motion of all your digits and joints. A "paper cut" or superficial cut can be glued, but can lead to infection. ...Read more
Scar: In order for a hypopigmented scar to repigment, melanocytes will need to migrate from the adjacent normal epidermis or the hair follicles. If exfoliation is performed to the depth where it causes scabbing, one has the potential to have textural changes and possibly scarring. It would be best to visit a Dermatologist and see if tacrolimus or pimecrolimus and/or Narrow band uvb would be appropriate. ...Read more
I burned my leg on my bike exhaust almost 10 days ago, but it didn't heal up completely. I'm applying silverex cream. How else can I speed the healing process?
Stop silverex: If you wound is not infected than silverex may actually slow healing. All you may need is Bacitracin or aquaphor ointment with twice a day cleansings with a mild soap such as cetaphil. Any edema or swelling in the lower legs may also slow healing and wearing appropriate compression garments will help along with elevation when possible. Stop tobacco use. If not healed by 2 weeks, scars are likely. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
