Her mosquito bite scars won't go away
November 28, 2012 11:14am CST
My poor little baby got a few mosquito bites on her arms and a couple on her legs, when I left her at my mother's place. It's been more than a month, and the scars won't fade away. The red marks have now turned to dark patch like scars. The doctor gave me a tube of Bactroban, an antibacterial cream, and I continued to apply it on her for more than 2 weeks, until its consumed. However, the scars are still there. I don't want to just get any over-the-counter cream or ointment for her. Do you have first hand experience on this with your kids, or maybe when you were a kid, and how did you or your parents treat it?

I remember my mom would diligently apply sebo de macho or petroleum jelly on our mosquito bites scars. Also, we used J&J milk bath, it doesn't lighten up the scars but it does soften the skin around it so it lightens up a bit and have the same surface as the healthy, unscarred skin. Hope this helps.

Sorry to hear about this, too bad for the baby but i think since he is just a baby the scars will go away too, in due time. I hope it does. I remember it usually is put on by sebo de macho here in the Philippines. But then i think only rosehip oil is the most natural oil you can use to let go of those scars.
