I got my first big case of road rash on my hip sunday when I went down on a slick turn in a century ride. Any idea how long this will take to heal?

Don't let that suckers Scab up. I had a very bad wreck this summer. Down hill, 45mph, front tire, and an expansion crack = no good. My right lower leg/knee, right hip, entire right forearm and my right shoulder were ground down to hambergermeat. I did'nt let is scab since skin streches and scabs don't. I changed the dressings roughly 4-5 times a day and slatherd on NEO, went through 4 tubes. Also in the later stanges of healing I used this TECHADERM stuff that helped alot and some steral gel stuff to keep it moist. Be sure to use non-stick gaz cost most but less pain to remove and should it stick go to a Walgreens if you have them there and buy some steraly H20 to wet the bandage and wound to clean it. My was bad enough that I could hardly walk for 2 days and was sore for 4 days and was off the bike for 2 weeks, wounds where the joint bend on both arm and leg. Hope this helps.
