It depends on the size, depth and condition of the scab. Scabs remain in place to protect the healing skin as cells develop and nerves are reconnected. The purpose of the scab is to act like a shield to prevent infection and further damage to vulnerable tissue, nerves and blood vessels. That scab may be unattractive, but its purpose is valuable and necessary. A shallow, surface wound with an average scar will take between one and two weeks to heal. However, there are several factors that will determine the length of time it will take for a scab to heal up. Around two weeks.
