So I have this gross scar on my knee and now that is is dress, skirt and shirt season I see it all the time and it drives me crazy!! The sad part of it all is that I gave myself the scar..lol I scratched myself with my thumb nail one night while I was sleeping and when I woke up my leg was killing and blood was everywhere. It was a really deep cut and it took a long time to heal. Now there is a huge scar and it is super dark. I saw a commercial on tv for some cream to make scars fade but I’m not sure the name of it. Anyone heard of or used a cream or remedy for scars? Any advice is appreciated 🙂

The cream they show on TV a lot is Mederma. I’ve never really had any luck with it. The one thing that really works for me is time and moisturizer.

@sweetchiquita12: Your best bet would be to see a dermatogist. I think there are laser treatments that can give good results.
I would be hesistant with topical products, as I suspect many of them don’t improve the appearance. One of the things I hear about on tv is BioOil, but I have no idea if it works.

I’ve has some luck with rubbing vitamin E on mine. They sell it in liquid form or you can buy the gel capsules and poke a hole in them.
For drastic results though, I agree with AB Bride, a dermatologist is your best bet.

If it is a scar that is already healed and has been there a while most of the over the counter products aren’t going to do much. Vitamin E is the best when it is a fresh scar. But if you have had it for a while I would head to the dermatolagist and go for laser treatment.

You have a tracheotomy scar? Were you quite unwell?
