How to make Scab come off faster?

Recommended Posts

I had a really bad acne breakout in March or April and now it's September and the scars from my acne is still here, particular one huge scar left from a cystic pimple.

The wound has turned from pus oozing to red patch to purple to brown... now it's somewhat hardened into a brown scab. It's been there for over a month. Everytime I try scrubbing it , the scab comes off a bit and then another one forms.

So now i'm just not touching it and waiting...

What can I do to make the scab come off faster to reveal light pink "healed" skin without agitating it more?????

PLEASE HELP... i'm desperate.

The longer the scab stays on, the better. I wouldn't be messing w/ it.

Though for me, scabs usually just fall off in the shower where there is a lot of steam.

I agree with Lexy - leave the scab on for as long as possible. It may not look good at the moment, but what you are left with afterwards may look better if you can put up with the scab for a little longer.

I'd advise moisturising the scab with emu oil, and, if you can afford some, use amino-plex spray on it. Both these are intensively healing and moisturising and should help your scab to heal naturally.
