  • It heals faster when you leave it alone. The air helps to heal it and it can work faster when its not so moist.
  • The American College of Emergency Physicians now recommends that you keep the scrape covered and moist, to encourage new cell growth and a speedy recovery.

Which skinned knee will heal faster with it covered with a bandage or left alone?

a skinned knee that is not covered with a bandage willl heal faster. If uncovered the wound will form a scab faster. You should cover the scrape initially, then allow the wound to "breath" for a period of time. If pain subsides when the wound is covered, then at least uncover the wound while you sleep. If you leave a single bandage on for a long period of time without removing it, the bandage could scab to your scrape. As the blood dries it will hold to the bandage, and it is very painful to remove it. My advice is to cover the wound when needed, but leave it uncovered whenever possible.

Does a turbo make your car faster?

A turbo can make your car faster by increasing the amount of air that the engine can have inside the cylinders. A turbo alone will not make a car faster, you will need to adjust the amount of fuel that is injected into the engine as if you add too much air it will cause your engine to lean out and blow up.

I live upstate New York in deep woods and I can not get internet connection, are there any rural broadband internet companies that I can call that offer these kinds of connections?

You are not alone, there are many people living in areas not covered by broadband. Do you have a cellular telephone and get decent reception? If so, then check with your carrier to see if they offer broadband cellular modems. These modems are not as fast as DSL or cable, but will at least be faster than dial-up.
