    Default Scab picking

    My two year old ds does this constantly.
    He got a cut on his face about two months ago and hasn't left it alone. We did manage to get it healed over and it has left a scar, but he picks it constantly until it bleeds and we are back to square one.

    Any ideas on how to get him to stop and get it healed?

    Try some pawpaw ointment on it overnight. It amazes me how quickly it encourages the healing process. As with the picking, no idea sorry

    Zinc cream overnight for drying the scab. Not sure how to stop him from picking at it though.
