How To Prevent Scars From Forming

Q: Hi. I recently went swimming and I scraped my face on the concrete in the pool. About a dime size of my skin is missing from my face, right under my right nostril.

I was wondering what would be the best product to use in the healing process, so that I don't have a scar? Thanks!

A: Because so much skin is missing I would stick to something like Neosporin until a scab starts to form and once that falls away and there is a solid layer of skin there I'd start using vitamin E capsules.

You can just pop it open and rub the oil over the area to prevent it from getting too dark after it heals.

Hope you get better soon.
