Getting them to heal ? - July 12th 2013, 11:40 PM

They're somewhat healing.. but they're also not it probably doesn't help that each time they begin to heal and bits of the scab begin to fall off I'm pulling the scab of the cuts off.. But basically tuesday I'm going on holiday.. Ive been using E45 and palmers cocoa butter on them to help them heal and it is working but they don't seem to be healing quick enough so what I'm wondering if there is anything else that is cheapish and that works that I could use to make them heal a little bit quicker ?

I've got cuts from like five months ago that aren't healed because I keep picking at the scabs. Honestly Lydia, don't bother buying more things to try and help it, just stop picking at them, leave them alone and they will heal themselves. The only reason they aren't healing is because you're interfering with the process. I know its hard but if you want them to heal, you have to leave them.

Hope this helps.
Jessie.

Ah okay, hopefully they will be nearly gone by wednesday as I'm managing to leave them alone , (am travelling tuesday). Might try the old fake tan trick to try and disguise them/blend them in a bit . As for what I'm going to tell mum I'm not really sure.. I'm thinking possibly telling her insect bite and karate and cupboard at work. But I can still use the current creams etc to help a-bit or is there not much point in using the ones I already own ?

Lydia, you shouldn't be putting anything like that on them if they aren't healed yet. Stick to something like neosporin and leave them alone. I also found that stuff heals a lot faster for me when I have them covered in bandaids, specifically waterproof ones.

Ohh okay so even if they've scabbed over I cannot put anything like that on them ? that might also be why they've not been healing properly aswell then.I will try the band-aids/plaster as if they are covered I cannot pick at them!.
