Hey,

Last night I was lying on my living room floor and my cat, as hyper as he is, was playing with his mice, then he took off running and ran right over my face.....I have a huge scratch going right down the side of my face, and a couple other little ones as well. I have been applying polysporin to it, but it looks horrible, anyone know of any home remedies I can use to make it heal faster and prevent it from scarring? Please respond ASAP.

ADB :rolleyes:

I hope you washed it thoroughly with soap and water right away. If it is a superficial cut, it should heal without scarring.

Polysporin is very good, and there is nothing much else you can about it.

Yes, I did wash it with soap and water right away. It's not very deep so hopefully it won't scar.........it's really long though, one's about 2" and the other is about 1.5".......not nice looking at all......but oh well!!

If there is any chance of scarring -once the skin starts to knit over rub Vit "E" on it 3 x a day. Really reduces scar tissue formation
