Default what can i put on my face to heal a scrape?

well long story short, when i was playing basketball with some friends i slipped on some gravel and scraped a dime piece off of my cheek.

well now its really red and it has been like that for three days. i have been putting a bandaid on it with some polysporin along with some hortisone cream.
but it still looks the same..

anyone have any ideas of how i can speed up the healing time a bit?

thanks guys

Do not let it get dry. This is where your scarring will get you. Keep neosporin on it always. Don't worry about how long it takes.

uhm ok maybe ill give neosporin try. i know its not infected since i've been putting peroxide on it today and it dont bubble or tingle so...

mhmmm.. im not sure where i can find someone with an aloe vera plant though..
i do have a topical on right now that has some aloe vera in it though..

yeah i just got my dermatologists number so ill be giving them a call tomorrow.

do yall think i should leave a bandaid on all the time or just let the scrape dry out? i heard that if i let it dry out that it would scab and could possibly leave a scar..

this scrape isnt that bad or deep it just looks really nasty... kinda like a "cherry" from carpet burn or something like that..

That purple wound spray for cows/horses you can get at the feed store is incredible stuff and better than anything we can buy at the pharmacy...course, you will look kind of funny for a few days.

It has no antibacterial quality and you could get an infection.

Beat me to it. But first put some monkey blood on it (mecurechrome sp?). this will make you appreciate the honey better.

Peroxide is only to be used for the first time you clean a cut. With repeative use it can kill the new cells that are forming and actually cause a scar.
Just use neosporin or buy Vitamin E gel pills at wally-world and poke a whole in them and squeeze the contents onto your cut.

Again.....no! Psoriasin will reduce redness yes, but redness caused by irritation, not by infection. Also, gels are drying...which you don't want.

Don't use cortisone or hydrocortisone because it is a mild steroid. It has no antibacterial activity to it and if overused...can thin the skin.

I'm not trying to be a know-it-all, but I'm telling you to keep up with the polysporin/neosporin and Mederma. If you have any other questions PM me. (I've worked in the field of dermatology for several years)

I gave myself a deep gash above my eye and got 8 stitches. The Doctor said that it would leave a bad scar if I didn't take care of it; he recommended this stuff called Mederma Cream. It is specifically designed for facial scars - you put it on 3x/day for 8 wks; it's kinda pricey ($40) but it's working for me so far. You can get it at any drugstore.
