Scab on lower leg wound. Keratinocytes (skin cells that contain the protein keratin) migrate to the site of a wound and accumulate in layers. This forms a scab, a hard protective structure that covers the wound to allow skin repair to proceed underneath the scab. Once the wound has healed, the scab will loosen and fall off.
