Hey, about a month ago I self harmed quite badly

Patient

Q: Hey, about a month ago I self harmed quite badly on my leg. My mum knew I did it before but thinks I haven't done it since. Things didn't go down too well last time so I really don't want to tell her. These cuts haven't really healed and I'm going on holiday in less than 2 months and I really really need to make them less visible. Nothing seems to be working. Please please please help. I will tell my mum but I'm going on holiday with friends who will tell everyone. Please could you help me, what Can I do (a way to make them heal or something that will cover them even when in water) thank you so so much.
