Scar Treatment

I've tried so many types and methods of scar treatment - Cica-care, Centallase, and even some cream for post caesarean section pregnancy scars. Overall, I spent quite abit just to hide the scars. They look like centipedes. haha...

Alas, my scars on my left arm are still so visible, I bet NASA can pick them up from satellites orbiting above.

Then I met Joppa from my NS unit. He also had a similar accident that resulted in a similar pattern of scars (and internal 'metal scaffolding'). His scars are almost invisible and he swears by Vitamin E cream. I'm trying it out now. Stay tuned... ...

Hi Chelonia,

Your blog pops up when i did a google search on stretched scar. I have a similar scar from a snowboard accident 8 months ago, and I'm wondering if you have any update on your scar? Did the redness go away, and did the raised part flatten?

Also try medruma. I had scars covering my face from being burned. Now I have no traces of them

I have almost the exact same scar on my right arm. Two of them, in fact... one on the other side. Mine is raised and the same color as well. It bothers me every day. I also have two plates and 13 screws on the bones. Car accident. Has the vitamin E helped at all???

I've got the same scar on my right forearm from a snowboard accident. I usually hide it, because I don't like too much people's attention. I want to cover it up by tattoo, hope it woudn't be seen so clearly. Now I hate this ****ing snowboarding and gave up doing it, I better had been swimming instead of it.
