Question About SCARS

My daughter got pushed at a party this weekend by an older girl (it was an accident) and she hit her head on a slate fireplace and now has 3 stiches in her forehead. I was wondering if anyone has any good advice for treating scars so that they are less noticable. thanks

oh no I am sorry to hear that. Is she ok? you can try maderma for kids. I don't know what the age restrictions are for it but that cream will help.

you could ask your ped. or a dermatologist what over the counter stuff they recommend.

Yep, Mederma for kids and DON´T expose her scar to sunlight. Another thing that I have tried myself but don´t know how comfortable you´d feel trying it is honey. It is antibacterial, antiinflammatory and containes some protein or something that helps regenerating cells.

When my now 3-year-old was about 18 months old my oldest daughter set him on the bed where I had the iron on and he got burnt on his leg very badly....he had one burn about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long up the front of his lower leg and one burn about the size of a half dollar on his innner thigh. Our pedi told me that as soon as it had healed to the point that the scab came off to use Vitamin E oil several times a day. You can barely see either of the scars now and the oil is alot cheaper than Mederma. Also, it may be rea__suring to know that as your daughter grows and the skin stretches the scar will not only be less noticeable, but can actually 'move' into the hairline. As a child I cut my chin and had a visible scar...that scar is now on the underside of my chin and not noticeable at all.

Im scared about the whole vitamin E thing because ive heard conflicting opinions. A few doctors have said that is will make it better, while others have said it can make it worse. Since its down pretty far on her forehead i dont see it moving into her hair line. Im thinking about using the mederma for kids....It says for kids 2 and up. my daughter is 17 months....ill see what ped says

we had great results with it and my son was only 18 months old....the scars looked horrible when the burns first healed and they were also very large, but now you can barely tell they are there.

My son had open heart surgery when he was 3 weeks old, so has a large scar on his chest. I apply vitamin e oil. It is surprisingly very faint now. I have also heard that emu oil is better
