Here we see the brand at the age of one week. There was general tenderness and swelling in the general area of the burns. The edges were very sharp and crispy, literally. Slowly a crust started to form in the deepest parts of the trenches.

At the two week age point, I decided to do the first removal of the scab, using hydrogen peroxide to bubble the scab off the entire surface of the burns evenly. Removing the scab was painless, unless I pressed or rubbed to hard with the cotton swab. Essentially, I washed off the scab with household hydrogen peroixde as I had been told it could promote the lines spreading and the marking.
