I have no sense of time. But fear not, I will find out. Last time I cut was about a week ago, and I will keep an eye on it to see when that's closed.
Mk it's closed up, crust gone, and just a scar now. So it took pretty much exactly three weeks with proper taping closed and taking care of. I would try with no taping for the comparison, but I really can't be bothered to have worse scars in the name of science
. Since this is the only cut I've actually counted days on I have no idea just how representative it is but it sounds pretty right compared to the rest of you so I'm guessing that's round about what it normally takes me.
