Memories of a Bite Worse Than a Bark

When I was a kid, I went to the park with my parents. A dog was also at the park and randomly came up to me. At first the dog looked friendly, but then it bit me in the face. I screamed and cried and my parents had to pull the dog away from me. The dog attack left me with a scar on my face. Over time, the scar’s visibility was lessened, but it could still be seen by anyone. One day I finally got the scar removed by going to a clinic for aesthetic in Singapore.

After years of having it, I figured that there was no hope for removing the scar, but after learning that the clinic existed and that they had different treatment methods for dealing with scars, I decided to give them a chance. I made an appointment for the doctors at the clinic to examine the scar and determine the best course of action for removing it. They came up with a treatment plan that used abrasion, along with some topical creams that would encourage the growth of new skin cells in place of the old ones. The plan was for the skin cells that make up the scar to gradually be phased out and have new, healthy cells in that area.

The treatment for the scar lasted over the course of weeks, and I was amazed to see that the doctors had done the impossible. The scar left by that random dog all of those years ago was gone. Now the only thing left from that bite that I need to remove is a fear of dogs. I’ve never been able to go around any dog since that day because I’ve been afraid of getting bit. Even the smallest dogs make me nervous when I see them.
