Information on Abrasions

DescriptionAbrasions, an area of small cuts to the skin with redness and pain, are caused by trauma to the skin, such as a fall or scrape.
Treatment PlanAbrasions often get hot and painful, thus soothing demulcent herbs, anti-inflammatory herbs, or herbs that speed the production of new skin and tissue are effective.
