I got poked in my upper eyelid near my nose with a pen. I needed stitches, now I have a scar. I know it's not that big but is there anything (excepting vitamin E) that can lessen the appearance of it? Thank you so much.

This scar should fade with time. You can apply some vitamin E or Mederma( which you have been applying) on the scar. If it still persists then you can go in for plastic surgery or laser treatment.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
