Any tips for scar prevention (stitches on forehead)?
16 stitches on forehead done in ER; stitches to be taken out in 2 or 3 more days. Concerned about scarring and what I can do to reduce the look of the scar (other than wearing bangs).
Long back story involves a rainy night, 1:30 AM, a possum on the fence, an open dog door, 3 barking dogs, ivy, and a stone border on a walkway. Read in a woman tripping while carrying a wiggling small dog, deep cut on forehead, the early hours of 12/24 at the ER, etc., etc., etc. Ugh!
Do you have any tips for reducing the appearance of scarring once the stitches are out? I'm using antibiotic ointment on my stitches now.
