OK folks I need personal testimonials for scar healing treatments
Friday, January 14, 2011
On Wednesday I got the 11 stitches out from the scar on my neck where the surgeon took out the gumball-sized lump on my lymph node. The pathology report has already come back and the lump was benign and was mostly chronic inflammation.
So now I have a 3 inch scar on my neck. My dear SIL and the surgeon both suggested using Mederma to help the scar heal and to look less noticeable. I looked up Mederma on Drugstore.com and saw that it was generally well reviewed but one reviewer did say to not use it on relatively new scars as it might cause tingling.
I am now curious about the other scar treatments options out there. Let me know what kind of treatments you have used to help scars heal and what kind of outcome you had as a result.
OK folks -- as a result of your suggestions, I have decided that Mederma is not the way to go. A good moisturizer applied a few times a day should suffice as it seems as te one thing I need to do is to massage the area. Thanks for saving me some $$$!!!
