Abrasions of the skin are very common among active kids and adults. The upper or superficial layer called the epidermis is rubbed away by a shearing force such as moving contact with a rough surface leaving raw denuded skin. Usually, the deeper layer of the epidermis becomes exposed. Abrasions usually display minimal bleeding and fortunately heal quickly without scarring as long as repeated trauma is avoided. If the abrasion goes to deeper layer such as the dermis or even deeper to the fat under the dermis, it is more than a graze and then it may heal with an elevated, red and at times painful scar. The history of accidental trauma during playing sports or falls is common.
