Re: Newbie burn help

I've seen Mederma as being advertised for scars. You could check it out.

Re: Newbie burn help

Sorry, I know of nothing that will put pigment back into the skin. My son has vitiligo which takes away the pigment as well. Michael Jackson also had this. If you can't fix it then the next best thing is acceptance. Make up might also be an option but it's a large area so not sure you would want to do that, but it's a suggestion.

Wish you all the best!
