How skin repairs itself when cut

Clip from Operation Ouch! Season 2 Episode 2 ABC ME January 27, 2016

When we've cut our skin, our body has a way of repairing itself, involving new skin cells and amazing support to promote their growth! Through this cartoon featuring 'The Unluckiest Kid', we learn all the healing steps the skin takes. From clotting to bacteria and infection fighting, the whole process is fascinating. And wouldn't it be a shame to undo it all by picking that scab rather then letting it heal by itself!
