How to prevent scarring??

My cousin was in a car wreck on Christmas Eve and has burns and scabs all over her neck and chest from the seatbelt. Is there anything out there that will help it not scar?

  • Should she use it now or wait until it's about healed or what?

  • Shea Butter. My friend was severely burned in a bonfire gone wrong. I gave him a tube of Jordan Essentials Shea Butter (Unscented & Dye Free). Within a few days his face had healed up, no peeling or scabs. He also used it on his tatooed arms because the stuff that the hospital gave him turns the skin dark. Shea butter has natural skin cell regeneration properties.
