Cheek Injury. What Can I Do About This Scar? (photo)
My 2 yr old cut her cheek on the corner of a door 4 wks ago- it stopped bleeding after a few min and didn’t appear deep so we didn't go to ER. She still has a red scar (1/2 cm long and <1 mm wide) and when she moves her face, there is a 1.5 cm long indentation near the injury. I have been putting Mederma on it for 2 weeks, massaging with vitamin E oil, applying sunscreen. The redness will liekly fade but will this indent be permanent? Is there anything else I can do? Photo attached is fuzzy.
