Will this wound leave a scar?

I tripped and fell on the stairs and now I have this wound on my forehead. Quickly after the accident we went to the the hospital where the doctor desinfected the wound and glued it together with medical glue. Will it leave a scar? If not, how long will it take to heal? How should I treat it after glue comes off?

Hi emiliema,

Sorry to hear about your fall. Sadly, we are unable to give out specific medical advice to you here, but maybe give the A&E dept a call and ask if someone could advise you?

In the meantime, please find a link here for dealing with scars:

Sorry to hear about your fall emiliema. I wouldn't worry about it so much. It looks like the doctor has done a good job on it.

It looks a bit like the kind of injuries the kids pick up on the sports field everyday. You'll be fine.

:)
