  • idk of any topical stuff you can put on there but if it is a thick keloid scar you can ask your dermatologist about kenalog injections, they don't hurt and they make the scar lie flat

  • i would suggest going to your local health food store and asking them... ive come to find that the natural oils and things they have and suggest at ours seem to work well for dermatologic issues.

  • keep it clean, aside from that there isn't much you can do. If it's a clean cut it typically doesn't scar with a raised welt, if it's jagged it might. A scar is based on how the tissue fusses so if you can, keep the wound tightly together.. butter fly bandages help with this as well. When I cut my knuckle off I used butterflies with some special glue for wounds like that, and unless you know what you are looking for you can't even see a scar.

  • when you get cut use skin super glue. it keeps skin together and doesnt cause a scar.
