Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for contacting Justanswer.
My name is***** khan. I am board certified family physician with specialist training in dermatology. I shall try and help you today with your query.
Let me have a quick read through and I’ll get back to you shortly.
if you have noticed a wound, is it possible to upload a picture of this wound?
I actually agree with your doctor.
looking at your background history and the fact that you have been on blood thinners, there is a possibility that you might have torn the skin with the scrub. especially if there was no pre-existing lesion in this area as well.
for quicker healing, you can put some hydrocortisone 1% on this area, twice daily for the next 3-5 days. It will take down the inflammation and help with faster wound healing. You can buy it OTC.
If at any point you notice heavy bleeding, then please seek urgent help.
I hope this answers your question.
If you are happy with the response, Can I ask you to take some time to rate the consultation? Your feedback is very important for my professional growth and also for the fact that until you have rated the consultation we do not get paid for our work.
This does not mean that your query gets closed after that. You can come back as many times as you like through the thread and ask me further questions regarding this problem.
Best wishes and good luck.
Ok, thats good to know.
