Hi -- sorry, cannot help you .. the few scars I have are the best they can get and one I had from a surgery 30  yrs ago they cannot help me with.  A good plastic surgeon can help .. you can even as one of our experts here on our Dermatology Expert Forum:  http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Dermatology/show/115

If it's something your doctor thinks can be helped with Mederma cream, I've had excellent results using that.  It's otc ... and now they make it in generic so it's less money.

How are you?  While scars are permanent, they can be revised but not completely removed. There are many products in the market that claim to remove scars that decrease inflammation and minimize pigmentation. . However, there are not enough studies to show their complete removal. There are many factors to consider such as the type of scar, location, depth, width, age and your medical history. It is best that you have this checked by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist for proper evaluation. Scar revision through surgery and laser treatments may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
