Face burn

I have a burn scar on the side of my face that is several years old and never completely healed.  It's an oblong 1" scar, and the top part keeps scabbing and periodically bleeding slightly.  Is there a way to make it heal and stop bleeding?  Thanks.

The fact that it is several years old and still opening is very problematic.  Perhaps the best approach would be to have a surgeon evaluate it for excision and revision.  This is likey to remove the problem  area are give you a more cosmetic closure.
