    Is there going to be a scar left on my daughter's face

    Hi, Everyone

    My 4-year old daughter fell down from the sofa at home and bumped her head on the coffee table. The wound was between her eyebrows, about 1cm. Now it has healed but still looks quite red.

    Will there going to be a scar left? What can I do?

    Thanks

    Don't apply any over the counter cream before you check with your doctor. If you are worried, why not go to a doctor/dermatologist for advice?

    Be also careful if her eyesight is affected. Hit between the eyes can cause damage to the sphenoid/ butterfly bone which if out of whack can cause dyslexia etc.

    if all other things are well. when the scar is healed totally, i mean the scap fallen off already, you can put some pure vit e oil. i wouldn't worry much about it. she's 4 her metabolic rate is so high, you shouldn't be able to see anything in 6 mths. i'm 36, i hit my eye 10 years ago, the scar was so big people said i should have gotten 3 stitches. i did't go to the doc, just made sure i didn't get an infection (by putting anticeptic ointment). when it formed a scar, i made sure i didn't scratch off the scar by religiously putting vit e oil on (i always kept vit e capsule with me, i puncture the capsule with a sterile needle & squeezed the oil & put on the scar, made sure it wasn't itchy). now i don't even remember which eye it was.
