    Go see your doctor if it looks bad and don't do this type of thing in the future. You obviously know it's not a healthy practice. If you're not telling the truth about the story and are harming yourself out of depression or whatever else, please seek out a psychologist/psychiatrist.

    Firstly, what does it looke like? If it has scabbed it is healing do not pull the scab off, I hope you done it in a clean area and any dirt could infect it. Clean it make sure you don't cut it again if nothing improves then go to the doctors and seek medical advice on it. Secondly if it was out of depression tell your GP and they should be able to help!

    I hope it heals soon but if its purple its not like any of the ones I've seen and if burn cream doesn't stop it hurting then I would really advise speeking to your doctor and if you've done this out of depression then talk to someone about it hun
