    Fell and cut my skin

    I fell a couple of weeks ago on the lawn and cut my leg. Not much, but it was bleeding slightly. I didn't think much of it, but I notice it is red under the scab and I'm not sure, it looks like might be slightly enlarging. No pain, no itching, but I'm a little worried.

    Sounds like a normally healing wound. The redness indicates a good blood supply which is very good. Just keep it clean and dry and let the scab develop and shed by itself. Cheers, Sera

    Thanks, I'm keeping my eyes on it. I probably should have gone to the Dr at least for a tetanus shot. My last one was about 20 years ago.
