Angry Scabs

So when you finally get rid of a pesky spot, it always leaves a HUGE scab....whats the fastest and most effective way to get rid of these without scarring??? Help appreciated..

Re: Scabs

This won't help, but it's true. Don't touch it. It will dry up and fall off faster if left alone.

It's easier said than done I know. I have a hard time trying not to pick em off. But when I have enough self disipline to leave them alone, they do go away faster.

Re: Scabs

Ya, it's easier to cover if you pick, but the scab will keep scabbing over and over. And it will stay around twice as long. And this is also how you get scars........tsk tsk tsk...

I know it's hard though. I still do from time to time. But I am getting better at holding back.
