August 5th, while glass blowing, I burned both thighs with a punty (metal rod the glass is attached to). I managed to smack both legs and I was wearing shorts so it was a direct burn.
The scars are very large and flat. No texture at all.
I had a few samples of kelo-cote (gel with polysiloxanes, silicon dioxide) so I used that at first but now I'm using mederma. I was wondering which is better for my type of scar (used both especially kelo-cote too short of a duration to tell which is better). Can I use both at the same time? I've also heard of other home remedies such as lemon juice which I haven't tried. I'd appreciate other recommendations as well.
I've also been avoiding exposing them to the sun, but it's a bit hard in the summer. Will sunblock be sufficient at the beach or do I still need to wear pants?
One medicine which has been advised by many dermatologists for scar diminishing is contractubex gel/cream. You can seek your dermatologist/surgeon’s opinion before using this cream. Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings. Severe scarrings may need skin grafting by a plastic surgeon.
You can consult a plastic surgeon/dermatologist about these options and find out which one works the best for you.
