Normal?

My daughter will be 2 in 8 days but for about a year now every time she gets a scratch it seems to leave a noticiable scar. Her legs look terriable im almost embarassed to let her wear shorts for someone might think i do that to her. She is a very active 2 year old loves the outdoors and is still a little clumsey.When she gets a mosqito bite it turns into a big sore and scars really bad. Does anyone elses Kid have this is normal and will it go away?

  • Try moisturizing her really well and putting neosporin on her scrapes. It does help minimize scarring.

  • My son is like this too. He was diagnosed with keloid (sp?) skin. The smallest scratch will leave a puffed up scar.
