Deep Crater Wound on face - please help

Deep Crater Wound on face - please help

Posted in the Dermatology Forum

I recently had a large bump appear on my face, just to the right of my mouth. It felt infected - like an infected hair follicle or boil. Whatever, I gave my wife permission to try and pop it. After a day or two it developed into a nasty dark red scab. The scab remained for over a week before I accidentally knocked it off in my sleep. I have now been left with a nasty open wound that looks like it could remain as a crater scar. I have read that Vitamin E oil is good for removing scars but I'm not sure what to do in the interim. Will it heal? It looks gunky within the crater so I'm not sure whether I should just leave it or start putting Vitamin E oil on it now. Any help would be much appreciated. I am very worried and don't want to have a scar on my face. I am 30 years old and from the UK. Thanks. Rob
