I was too aggressive with a washcloth in my attempt to self-remove a seborrheic keratosis on my temple. I seem to have injured myself. At first, the spot where I rubbed was just a bit red and raw, but 3 days later it looks like a full-fledged scrape with light scabbing. I'm keeping vaseline on it. Any advice for speeding the healing?
Embarrassing Injury Filter: I managed to scrape my vulva on a rough surface today. Now I have these little paper cut type abrasions on the very softest parts but I can't really see them and I don't know what to put on them so they heal up properly. Can I put Neosporin on them? I'm worried that if I'm not careful any ointment I use will spawn a YI or something. :( My gyno won't be open till after the New Year otherwise I'd call and ask her.

I've been screen printing all weekend and the squeegee has abraded my fingertips off! I'm leaving bloody fingerprints on my paper and my hands hurt. I still have 200 more prints to go in the run... is there anything I can put on my fingertips to protect and heal them, and/or dull the pain while I finish? [more inside]
Thanks to a douchebag contractor that dumped a cubic yard of broken cinder blocks in the bike lane, we're back to the eternal question: Is it better to leave a large but shallow scrape injury open to the air or cover it? Or is there some other thing I should be doing? [more inside]
What could have caused this weird mark on my friend's neck? It started out as a red patch, then turned into this... half-flower/sun-shaped thing! Picture. [more inside]
I fell down while running and abraded my chin. Two weeks later, I have a red circle of healed skin on my chin. It looks silly, and I'd like it to go away faster (similar abrasions on my arms took over a year to disappear, and although I treated my chin better, I'm still worried). [more inside]
