Scratch under armpit
 
Hi,
I have a burning scratch under my armpit which is kind of a small open wound and which I don't know how I did maybe from shaving I don't know but I'm trying to heal it up and I'm trying to find a bandage that would stick and not come off any suggestions? I'm also applying Neosporin but I need the bandage to hold in place.

Thank you

Try a piece of gauze- the kind that comes in squares and use medical tape to hold it in place... that might work.

Dear LB,

I find aloe vera to heal a scratch up quickly.
No cover needed. But the wound would need to be washed first to remove any oily substance.
