I fell on raised sidewalk yesterday and scratched my face, chin mostly.

What it is safe to put on my chin so it won't get a scar?

  • Neosporin- to prevent infection
    Scarring is based on several factors

  • yup what butterfly says! Neo. for a few days then let the air get at it & scab over. DON'T pick at it!! After the scab has come off naturally you can rub pure Vit. E oil on it a twice a day and that will help A LOT!!

  • Neosporin
    Infection is more important that a possible scar. When it is healed any pharmacist can direct you to scar cream

    Keep it out of sunlight
