Well let me start by saying he is okay so don’t worry! My youngest who is 3 fall and hr his chin on the side of our coffee table. He came running into the kitchen crying. At first I thought he just had a little fight with one of the other 2 boys but when I asked I got no’s. When I saw some blood on his face I made him show me which he didn’t want to. I covered it and text my husband who works at an ER 30 minuets from our house. It was almost the end of his shift so he left a few minutes early after talking to one of the nurses and another Reg person to make sure they had things covered. Since I was still babysitting for the day he took our son to get looked st. From what I could tell it looked like he bed a stitch many two but still need to be seen by a doctor. I would have took him myself but with 2 kids not my own and it hung no life threading I didn’t want to take all 5 kids to the predi ER with me unless I had no other choice. After they got there checked in he didn’t have to wait long to be seen the places was empty which is a good and bad thing for an ER. The nurse and doctor looked st him and she said he just need a little glue for his chin. Yay no stitches! For him being a brave boy I’m going to get him something small. It’ll take for a week or 2 for t to heal but the glue will break down slowly allowing hit to heal more naturally.

Kids are resilient and heal much faster than adults, here is hoping no scar and soon the chin will be all healed up !

@ShyBear88 lots of Vitamin E for a few days rubbed into the injured area, topically though, and he'll show no scarring at all

Hi C. Yey no stitches. Hope he will be okay. But what is the glue? Is it a medication?

The glue is away to putting the skin back together without the use of stitches if a cut is deep and wide enough for it but not for a stitches. It isn’t really medication it lets your body blood pull and pull the skin back together like any other cut would

Oh, so glad he was a brave boy. He will be delighted with a little something as a reward for his bravery.
