I don't know if you can prevent the scar, but there may be some things you can do to help.

You can take vitamins-esp. zinc(no more than 50 mg/day), vit E(400 I.U/day), a multi vitamin, and definately vitamin C. These all help the skin to heal.

You should pierce a Vitamin E capsule and apply that to the area--I did this and it worked. The key is that it has to be immediately, while it's still a wound, I don't think it would work for healed scars since scar tissue has already formed.

I've seen commercials for neosporin, but I don't know if that works. I wouldn't even bother with mederma or elcina.


May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to keep you happy.

I just ordered CP Serum from Skin Biology and it is supposed to help with skin healing. It is apparently used for wounds. I haven't received it yet but lots of people are raving about it.
