    Arrow Scars?

    Does anybody know of anything that might help reduce scars? They're not huge, white scars or anything, just scars from cuts I got, I believe in December, and they don't really seem to be fading. Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks!

    They fade in their own time. Also, I saw on the tv an advertisement for a bandaid-like product that you apply to a scar and it helps to reduce it. I can't recall the name, but ask your the pharmacist and they'll probably be able to tell you.

    If they really bother you, go to a dermatologist. I have skin cancer and whenever I get one removed I scar real bad. After it heals I go back and he injects it with something. After a few weeks, you would never know it was there.

    An old wives tale.....My friends grandmother puts lemon juice in a abalone shell and lets it sit for about a day or so, Then the paste that forms she uses that for scars. I tried it on my daughter, did it fade because of this concoction or time. But over 3 mos an old scar on her face faded. Who can tell?
