  • Did you take her to the doctor for this? Most cuts to the head need stitched!

  • My 2 year old never picked at it either. I did put a band aid over it at first because I thought that she would.

  • Anon, if you look in the first picture, it looks like she is at the ER... I'd say some gauze and tape maybe? Or band aid,

  • Doen vote me if you want bt that is what the er doctor told me when I took my DS in. Facial and head wounds do not like to heal wel on their own and scare horribly if not treated.

  • I would just put a band aide on it and keep correcting her when you see her messing with it... Not much else to do...

  • The pictures were made in the er so of course she took her to the doctor...And my 2 year old kept pulling it off.

  • Anon... they used Derma-Bond on her wound... it's a surgical glue... much better then stitches, less scaring.

    OP you can use a band aid over it, but let it get some air a few hours out of every day. ;o) Poor little one.

  • She never said that an I was not looking at the back ground I was looking at the cut. Give me a break! Immaturity abounding in this place tonight...
