Re: Neosporin for Scars

I have tried the neosporin thing and it worked on one of the scars I had. This wasn't even an ice pick scar but a bigger saucer like scar. This is what I did. I brushed the scar very hard until it was really red. I think I saw a drop of blood but almost not noticeable. Then for the next week I applied neosporin every chance I had morning day evening night. You get the picture. I did this for 3 scars but I didnt scrub as hard for the other two. I think thats the key to making this work. You need to really scrub until you are either bleeding or very close to it. Cuz thats what I did and it worked on the scar I really scrubbed hard. It was still really red the next day. Now its not completely filled in but I would say about 50-60% improvement on it. Hope that helps some of you

Re: Neosporin for Scars

From seeing the commercials, Neosporin helps in preventing scars from forming, but it does not get rid of scars. Take care everyone.

Re: Neosporin for Scars

Sounds like you're just filling it in with new scar tissue?

Re: Neosporin for Scars

Well all I did after was just apply the neosporin any time i could . I never scrubbed the area again. Hope that helps.

Re: Neosporin for Scars

The trick to making a difference with the Neosporin is to do the brushing along with it...to the point of almost removing the skin around the scar so it can heal again and replace scar with new skin.
After about two weeks of using Neosporin several times a day, my ice pick scar turned white, the skin started to shrivel up around it a little and it seemed to fill in from the bottom up, but just to a certain point and then the improvement just stopped, so I started brushing to help stimulate it a little more.
The brushing and the healing properties of the Neosporin help make new skin. I guess that's what happens because my ice pick scar has filled in from the bottom up, it's very shallow now, and the rim around the edge is flat now. It's hardly visible at all. And it had been like a deep hole with a band of scar tissue around the edges. I'm really happy with the result and really ticked about all the money I've spent on expensive products that promised to help and didn't! It took about three weeks.

Re: Neosporin for Scars

Wait about a month then try it again. You should get even more improvement.
