Any recommendations for scar fading?
June 15, 2007 8:59am CST
Last year, I had to have two moles/birthmarks removed, over a concern that they could be the bad sort of moles. One was on my neck, and the scar from it has faded pretty well. The other one was on my chest, and I had some trouble healing the incision. So the scar from it is larger, and is still very apparent. I've heard of lotions or creams that you can use to help fade a scar, but I don't know anyone who has used these. Has anyone here tried to fade a scar with one of these lotions or creams? Any recommendations for the ones to look for, or the ones to avoid? General advice on fading scars is also appreciated, as long as it doesn't involve exposing it to lots of sun. This is not in a location that I can expose to the sun without sacrificing my modesty...
