i read your query.i want to know how did you got this scratch?
If its due to some animal nail i would advice you to get your
vaccination done.since the wound is flat now it will go
away in a weak.i would advice you to clean the wound dailt
betadiena solution after bath in order to keep antiseptic
evironment.dont worry the mark will go easily in a weak.
Continue to applly coconut oil on it.
