  • Keep it covered for a while when you go outside. The sun makes scars worse.

  • Someone on this site recommended vitamin E oil to me for a burn scar that I have on my arm. It has helped make the scar fade some.

  • being 2 chances are it could eventually grow and 'move' up on his forehead making it less visible as well. Vit. E is a very good choice.

  • Vitamin E or Mederma and keeps sunblock with a high spf on it ALL year long. My 8yo has a scar that he got when he was 2yo and nowadays most people don't even notice his scar wish is right below his eyebrow.
