Super. That looks quite good.

Does he have any other medical problems? Is he taking any medications?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
no nothing

Thank you for that information. Please give me a few minutes to type my recommendations.

Okay, I am back. I am so happy to say that the wound is very very small and doing a great job healing on its own. I would recommend just leaving it alone. The scab will form and fall off when the underlying tissues are healed.
