Rug burn scar on child's face

Hi,

My daughter got a nasty rug burn on her face, right by her eye.  It seemed to heal OK, but now, a month later, she still has a very red and obvious scar.  Will it go away or is she going to have this forever?  What can I do to reduce the scarring?  Any help would be appreciated, as I feel terrible that she has this scar in such a prominent place.

Thank you.

Hello,

For rug burn scars,wash the area several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful.If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how your child is doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
