Scab on inner elbow crease

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello happy new year!!! I was getting some shading work on my sleeve last weekend 7 days ago and on the 2nd day it was apparent that a scab was forming right on the crease of my inner elbow joint .so I've read it will need longer .the first couple of days I let that part dry out but it started to crack with the constant movement so instead I decided to use Bepanthen cream to keep it as moist as possible. All the other scabs have formed ok it's just this one . especially at night in bed the heat from my body keeps the crease of my elbow moist so it's still looking like a open wound. Should I just keep putting the bepanBepaon and keep it clean and just keep it moist? I'm really unsure .thanks

The ditch area is naturally tough to get healed without minor problems. Too much moisture is not going to solve the problem, in fact it could cause more. 

I let mine dry and crack. 

The eventual need for touch-ups are common.

    • I agree. It looks sweet. My bet is you'll probably grow to like it. At least give yourself that chance!!
    • I did a quick search and found only a no-info website page and almost no input facebook page. The Owner's name isn't even prominent or possibly even listed, so I can't really react to historical reference artwork or ability. Not comforting here from the outside.  The example you posted could be understandable to the closely initiated, but it's too small to provide any real detail. Hopefully you're going much bigger if you're intending to add a tree or two to the mix.  The results, feel and comfort gained (or not) from your consultation is going to be paramount.   
    • Looks good. Leave it alone!!! A dark tattoo on dark skin, you’re going to wind up with a big unreadable mess if you keep screwing with it.
