Scratched Off TCA Scabs During Sleep

Recommended Posts

Well, I unconciously scratched off the biggest TCA scab on my face in my sleep, revealing a red indent underneath. evil.gif I have been applying neosporin to it all morning. Is there anything else I can do? This is so frustrating considering that the scar might be a lot worse than what it was before I had CROSS done.

Also, have you guys thought of any ways that you can prevent from doing this in your sleep???

Thanks!

You're definitey doing the right thing by applying neosporin. I'd keep it very moist.

As for sleeping, I know some people wear mittens/gloves to protect their face, so they can't scratch off the scabs prematurely.

I would put a small piece of gauze over it at night, use medical tape to secure it to your face. That should help, and the skin could still breathe.
