First Aid FAQ's

What’s inside a scab?

Inside a scab are platelets, white blood cells, other various blood cells, and fibrin (a protein that helps stop blood flow). Platelets clump together to form a clot, while white blood cells attack any bacteria inside the wound that can cause infection. Removing a scab during this healing process can undo the repairs it has undergone and force it to start from scratch.
