Scratching your face can be a lot of hassle. In order to quickly get rid of them, it is necessary to begin the correct treatment of the wound surface as soon as possible.
Fresh scratches should be treated immediately with an antiseptic. For these purposes, three percent hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine solution is perfect. If there are no antiseptics at hand, then the scratches can be rinsed with running fresh water.
After that the Rescuer ointment can be applied to the scratch. It perfectly heals the surface of the skin, and also prevents infection from entering the wound.
You can also try Solcoseryl ointment or gel - they also perfectly heal minor skin lesions. The gel must be applied to the scratch two to three times a day, the ointment - once or twice a day. You can also try Actovegin ointment, it activates metabolism in tissues, improves trophism and stimulates regeneration processes.
At night, the scratch can be treated with a 5% iodine solution. It perfectly disinfects and dries the wound. During the night the iodine is absorbed and in the morning the yellow traces will no longer be visible. It should be noted that if the scratch is deep, then only its edges should be treated with iodine.
It is not necessary to cover the scratches on the face with an adhesive plaster at night, as the skin takes longer to recover under the patch.
If the scratch is not fresh, then it can be lubricated with Boro Plus cream. It promotes rapid skin regeneration processes and also helps to heal the skin without further scarring.
You can mask scratches with cosmetics only when they are dry. A concealer or powder with a drying effect is perfect for this. In pharmacies, you can also see correctors, which include antibacterial components - with them, the healing process will go even faster.
If the scratch is fresh, and you need to go outside, then you need to seal it with "breathable" adhesive plaster to prevent infection from getting into the wound.
