Oh, my goodness. I’m so sorry to hear that you’re dealing with this. If the area is still open, then you need to focus on healing and safe covering (otherwise the area may even pigment and leave a dark patch). The quickest way to heal an area like this is with PDT and some growth factor serum. Chances are that it will not be completely gone in a week, so using a healing treatment foundation that can still help you get away with covering the area up is also a good idea. You can find info on PDT and Growth Factors and treatment foundations such as Lycogel and Oxygenetics on our website ( or you are welcome to pop into one of the branches and have a look and get all the info you need.
