Natalie got a HUGE beyond HUGE rug burn on her face the other day. Of course she didn't notice it happening, and later that night I saw something funky on her face and touched it and it stung. I didn't really think anything of it and we headed to nap. When we woke up from naps Natalie's whole cheek was red. There was the center that was red and raw, and then the rest of her cheek was just RED. Cue me freaking out because there was something strange and raw and red and sticky seeming on her face! We couldn't figure out what it was, if it was a bite or something got on her skin and was burning her. I kept saying it looks like she got burned, and FINALLY we put together that Keith and the kids had been wrestling and dragging each other all over the house earlier that day. So it was a rug burn! Yikes!
Anywho, it has scabbed now, and she has a scab the size of a wonky quarter on her cheek, and I am so so so scared that it is going to leave a huge scar! How do I keep it from scarring? Any ideas? Will a rug burn even scar? I have never seen one this bad before. If it was her elbow I wouldn't care, but it is her precious little face! So far we are putting neosporin on it, and when it heals if is leaves a mark I will get some mederma for kids, but are there any other good ideas?
