How is best to deal with a carpet burn so it doesn't scar?
He has been crawling on all fours but putting his forehead on the ground and going as fast as he can - especially when he's having a strop. I am trying my best to stop him doing it but he keeps doing it when i'm not in the room.
As a result he's now got a carpet burn on the bridge of his nose. It's been weeping since he first did it yesterday, but today it had a very thin scab and he's already managed to bang it and make it bleed.
What's the best thing to put on it? I've put some savlon on it but he keeps wiping it off. It's quite a nasty burn and i'm worried it scars.....
I think toothpaste has to be almost immediate on (minor) burns for them to virtually disappear. If theres any burning feeling left in it (your DS will no doubt NOT be able to tell you!!) you can still try it.
Whats the worst that can happen? No nose decay and up to 24 hour protection???
