Question: My daughter, 2 years old, while playing get very minute cuts on her skin, which later turns into patches of 5x the initial size. There is no infection/puss in those wounds, at least not visibly. I also clean them regularly. Could you suggest any medicine that can be applied? Should I take her to a doctor/hospital and show directly?
