HI I would advise you not to pick up the scab as it will lead to severe scarring. Local application of Mederma will be helpful.

doctor1 MD

Its a possibility. Depends in the skin that has been burned. I strongly suggest that you apply two different creams on an alternating basis. 1) Neosporin and 2) Hydrocortisone... There's neosporin-h out there that has both in one. The neosporin part will help prevent infections and increase the rate of healing. The 'h' or hydrocortisone part will minimize inflammation and scarring.

Hi, no do not cause scaring, as there was no bleed, if on face may cause scaring. Thanks
