Scars

Hey,
i got cut on my arm and the scar is red and bumpy and just looks gross. i was wondering if anyone has ever tryed any scar removal creams or anything that actually worked somewhat. Its a fairly new scar...a few weeks old so i would like to try and take care of it now.
any help would be appreciated
thanks!

Re: Scars

i haven't tried this but mederma which is a cream i think, anyway i hear a lot of people like it and it seems to work although it does take time to notice a signifcant different so i guess you have to patient but apperantly it works really well.

Re: Scars

I tried it and I think I was allergic to it.. I used it on acne scars and it kind of burned and made the scars more pink and visible! It also smelled like ONIONS and I saw on the back that garlic is an ingredient.. so check for that when you buy some. I know the price has gone down.. I paid $37 for it and I saw it was a lot cheaper now. I'd try some of those bandaids with scar medicine in it... they seem easier to use and at least it helps cover it so the stuff stays on.. especially in an area like your arm that you use a lot.

Re: Scars

Use Rejuveness silicone sheets. They are fantastic! They will make your scar almost disappear (they flatten raised scars to the level of surrounding skin and get rid of th redness) and the sheets are reusable over and over. Well worth the money.
Some drug stores carry them or you can search for them online.
