I have a cut on my arm where I was reaching under a couch and drug the top of my arm across a staple.

For the most part, the cut has healed but the end of it doesn't seen to want to heal. When it looks like it is about to heal and a thin layer of skin covers it, it gets a blood under it and breaks back open.

Here you can see what it looks like:


The cust is about 1 3/4 inches long.

My question is, how do I get this to heal and get this huge lump of scar tissue at that spot to go away or go down some?
