Thanks for the query.
Apply neosprin ointment over the area.This will prevent infection.It will not heal in 2 days, but you can apply calamine lotion to hide the scars and also it helps in healing.

Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. it needs 3days for cure. 6days for epithelialization under the supervision of a doctor. so first thing to do is to see a doctor, after 3days continue medicine and use caladryl lotion which camaflogs the scar and helps epithelialisation. thank you.

You can use Fucidin-H cream twice a day for 5-7 days if it's just a superficial scratch. This will help to reduce the redness around it as well as help with healing.
You can apply a tinted sunscreen and this cream before putting on your makeup on the day of the shoot.
