I was recently in an auto accident and suffered multiple abrasions on my right palm and along my forearm to my elbow; the first two layers of the skin, dermis & epidermis, have been scraped off.
It's been nearly a week now and I've been applying Neosporin and aloe vera and occasionally cleaning with soap and water (as well as gauze pads and cloth wrap). However, there appears to be an off-white film (looks like moist, pale flesh) in various spots and a portion of it peels off when removing the gauze dreasings.
Is this in fact newly developing skin? Also, what can I do to minimize scarring? Any additional tips?
I'd appreciate any helpful insight/advice. Thanks.
