    What kind of wound occurs when the skin scrapes against a hard surface and tiny blood vessels break in the outer layer of the skin?

    Abrasions are scrapes that happen on the surface of the skin like scraping your knee. Avulsions are extremely deep scrapes where all of your skin comes off. Laceration are deep cuts.
