Laceration to arm
On December 5th, 2006, I sustained a nasty laceration to my forearm after falling on a glass which subsequently took a gouch out my arm which left me with a hanging skin flap. On attending the A&E dept, they inserted 7 stitches, however I then got an infection so the stitches had to come out, I attended the hospital on a daily basis to get dressings changed as laceration was very deep. Thereafter attented my local practise nurse for a further 4 weeks until wound had healed on the outside. I realise I am going to be left with a nasty scar, but my concerns are that the 'flap' of skin is still raised and not level with my arm, what I was wondering was will this ever reduce and eventually be level again.

Look forward to hearing your advice.
