Dod bite and scar on my 3 year old.?!


Dod bite and scar on my 3 year old.?

My 3 year old daughter got bit by a dog yesterday (a boxer). I am still exhausted. We have been at the hospital all night. We went sent to a children's hospital and they had a plastic surgeon do the repair. She had 30 stiches. It is right on her face. She said since they did such a good job it shouldn't scar that bad, but I am still worried. Any tips on healing and preventing a scar? I looks really bad now, but she said the stiches should fall out in about 1week and I am trying my best to not let her touch it. Thanks!


I am soooo sorry to hear that. I really think any scar will be very minimal since you had a plastic surg. take care of her immediately.
I've heard vitamin e oil applied to the scar helps. But I've seen commercials for some new products that claim to reduce scars available at local pharmacy.neuvederm I think.. I'm not sure when this should start now or after stitches come out but you could ask the doc what he recommends when he takes them out. Also WebMd provides tons of great medical info I am sure they would have info.
