What is a "scratch"?

A scratch is a small, shallow cut or scrape on the skin, often caused by something sharp like a fingernail, thorn, or rough surface. Scratches usually result in minor bleeding and can cause a stinging sensation. They are generally not serious and heal quickly with basic care, such as cleaning the area with soap and water, and possibly applying a disinfectant and a bandage to keep it clean and protected while it heals.
