Scar revision after bite
- That sounds rough, glad you're ok!
- It looks pretty small, and you can probably just cut it out and sew it back together nicely
- Ideally, you want to wait 6 months, but sometimes, you can inject it with some steroids to reduce the swelling and itching until it has matured a little more
