Re: the scar
For my neck scar, as soon as I was allowed I put on SPF 30 lip balm at all times so the sun would not affect the scar. But for my back I just use bio-oil (available in any well known drug store). My doctor said I could not use until I was at 3 weeks and that's today so I started today.
