Up to the age of 12 I was a darker skin little girl and what my mother applied to my cuts and scrapes was aloe from a plant. I think without it w ould have had plenty of scars to show for my childhood.

Start to apply cocoa butter to it a few time a day! Also, the pharmacy can recommend something for her. Good Luck!

I do not know that I have a great answer for you, but I have a daughter who is bi-racial and she had some mosquito bites over the summer that turned into scabs from her itching them and she is left with pinkish white circles on her arms. I wondered if they would ever return to her normal skin color of if they would always be that color. The only advice I can give to you is to apply some neosporin to the scrapes and make sure they stay clean. I hope she heals well and quickly!

When my little girl got a nasty wack on the head,t he Dr. told me to keep neosporin on it every day, and if she went out in the sun, to put sun-screen on it. If it gets sun-exposure the scar tissue will stand out more. Good luck!
