What should I do to help my cut/huge scratch heal fast? (photos)

A dog dragged me down a rock trail... Anything that touches it hurts. Hurts to walk and move leg.

I would employ local wound care followed by Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM once the skin heals over to prevent scarring.

For now you need silicone based scar gels with growth factors and consider pulsed dye laser as you heal.  Best, Dr. Emer.
