  • Nope, but don't scratch it. The itching is a sign that it is healing.

  • Don't scratch! i bite (not too hard) around the area to relieve some of the itching. Stick a bandaid on it w/ some cream to help.

  • Maybe try some triple antibiotic ointment or neosporin. Moisture can relieve the some of the itching. Be sure to let it dry out though, as well, or it will take longer to heal.

  • just squeeze it under hot water that will soothe it then put a little peroxide and watch it fuzz then clean and put aliitle Neo on a bandaid pad and put the bandaid on.
