How To Get Rid Of Sewing Scars On A Child’s Skin?
Tonight … I want to ask, is the torn scar (sewn) on a 2.5-year-old child can disappear by itself … or will it leave an adult’s mark?
Good night Lenny.
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Scarring (scar) is difficult to avoid in children, because of the child's daily activities and mobility. In principle, all wounds will close by themselves along with the growth of new skin tissue, causing scars to adulthood. Some injuries can be masked, but it is difficult to disappear altogether. Some scar tissue can even overgrow (form keloids). The process of wound healing varies depending on several factors, such as:
1. Type of wound. Generally, a torn wound without any missing tissue is generally healed faster with smaller scars, compared with a wound that is accompanied by lost skin tissue.
2. Wound condition, wound size. The length and depth of the wound, as well as the cleanliness of the wound, greatly influence the wound healing. Infected wounds are difficult to heal.
3. Individual variations. The same wound can cause different scars in different people. Some people have a talent for keloids, which usually depend on genetic factors.
4. Certain diseases. Certain diseases can inhibit the wound healing process, such as blood clotting disorders and diabetes mellitus.
For torn wounds that have already been sutured (hecting wounds), it is recommended to control every 3-4 days for wound cleansing, and to control the wound healing process. If an infection occurs, which is characterized by fever, a bad odor in the wound, and the wound is difficult to heal, consult a doctor immediately.
Thus my information, hopefully can help.
