    Hiya! I’ve got like a month old scar that’s gone puffy and red, it doesn’t look keloid it’s like underneath the scar is swollen as opposed to the scar itself and it itches, it was a shallow cut and I’m trying to avoid the doctors but I’m not sure if it’s fine or if something’s up 😬 Any advice would be appreciated!

    Show it to the chemist and hey can give you an opinion. You could also see the nurse an get a speedier appointment.

    No need to go to a doctor right now. Just pop into a pharmacy and they can take a look. Hopefully if there is anything going on they can also help you deal with it without needing to see a doctor or nurse.
    You may end up needing to get it seen to a bit better though so if you do a nurse is probably you best option. They can sort out stuff like that and you'll usually get to see them quicker than a doctor.

    Good luck.
