Hi, my name is***** and I will be assisting you today.
How long ago did you develop the scab?
Can you send a picture of the area?
Also, what is your race as that can affect healing?
OK, Indian skin tends to have a tougher time to heal.
However, since you let the scab fall off naturally you should have a better time healing.
The best thing you can do to improve healing is to stay out of the sun. Wear a hat to cover up the area. In addition, you should keep the area moisturized. The pharmacy often sells something called silastic sheeting, which is the only thing proven to help scars heal. You can apply that to the area twice a day.
No, it definitely will not stay pink permanently, but not sure if it will go back to the exact skin tone as the rest of the forehead. Just do as I said above and you will have a good chance.
Neosporin can help only before the scab falls off. Now, it is no longer necessary. Hope that helps.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Yes, that is the same thing.
