curling iron burn = scar?

A few days ago I burned my stomach (Don't ask..) with a curling iron. The iron was on my skin for mere seconds and then I pulled it away. Now I have about an inch-long red mark on my stomach, and I want to know if I will have a scar from this and how I can treat it.

Thank you very much!

Re: curling iron burn = scar?

If the curling iron was only there for a couple seconds I wouldn't think there would be a scar. I remember that my mom actually burned her forehead with her curling iron one time and she never developed a scar.

Take care!

Re: curling iron burn = scar?

it won't leave a scar if you treat it right. i work in a salon, and have burned myself many of times. i usually just put some peroxide on it, to clean it, then put some burn cream on it, or neosporin. when i got one on my face before, i got my dog to lick it a few times a day, and it was cured in 2 days. sounds strange, but it is something in their spit. thats why there wounds clear up so fast. good luck!

In addition to using an antibacterial ointment for burns, try some Vitamin E oil. VitE is often used to help prevent scarring.

What about some polysporin ointment while healing and I agree on using vitamin E oil on it for some time to help reduce scaring!

Try using menderma its for burns and scars ect. It works but it takes time. You can pick it at wal mart or most stores that have a pharmacy.

something that is great for burns is Vitamin A and D ointment. It softens the scar, then it eventually comes off without leaving any scars or marks.
