How do u know if your skin will be indented, after scab falls off?

Recommended Posts

So i got a small abrasion on my cheek, i dont think it was too deep, well the scab came off like 5 days later, now its been 3 days and the skin looks shiny and kinda indented a little, and its a bit puffy too. i am so confused and what will happen and i cant stop staring every 5 mins,

I hope it goes away, how do u know it will be indented, is it still in healing stages, its shiny, pink and a little puffy...

Yeah, its pretty hard to predict.

A lot of redness I wen't thorugh a few years ago has became indented scarring, but my skin seems to be prone to scarring. That doesn't mean yours will though, so you'll just have to wait and see.

Applying vitamin E to the area while it is still red can minimize the chances of scarring.

Taking Zinc suppliments can also be benifical.
