Janet,

You can still use the Vit E oil & cocoa butter, which are both excellent to cream your hand/wrist/scar whilst using the Arnica, of course not at the same time.

Its very good that you hydrate your scar as much as you can as it keeps your skin from dryness, which hurts.

Do you also need surgery on your left hand?

Best to rest your left hand now & not strain it.

Hoping you will feel better tomorrow.

Haydena.
