How are scabs involved in a normal wound healing process?

    A scab is the body’s protective covering that keeps the wound clean and safe while new cells grow.

    A scab basically has newly regenerated tissues growing underneath it. So by removing one, your are interfering with the healing process.

    Basically, when you get a wound, blood platelets immediately pack themselves together in the wound and form a plug, or a blood clot. This clot then may prevent or reduce further blood loss, but as more and more platelets collect around the wound, a substance called fibrin starts to build a web over the wound. The combination of platelets and fibrin creates scabs which protect the wound.
