  • My plastic surgeon recommends Mederma. I've also heard vitamin e. My best recommendation is to go to a dermatologist and get their input.

  • It depends on how bad the scars are, but I've heard Mederma works well for minor scars. In junior high I was a self-injurer and I have scars all over my arms...I'm not proud of them, but Mederma didn't work for me because there are so many so close together and they were pretty deep. So it depends on how close they are and how major or minor they are. If they are major, most creams or ointments won't help at all. :/
    Good luck!
