My one years old child has cut his eybrows by hitting the edge of the table while playing, the cut is a 2 to 3 cm vertical one and not very deep, it's exactly at the middle of the eyebrow, in the imergency section a doctor has seen him and confirmed that no stitches are required and he tapped him only. My concern is will the his eybrows hair grow again ?, if it leave any scar what do you recommend me to do? and when should I start? I mean how long should I wait as he is only One Year Old.
Need of suturing is decided by depth and not by the size. If it is superficial then surely only apprination of edges is required (either by suture or tape or dressing). If wound edges aproxination is proper then eyebrow hai groeth shouln't be a probelm
