Sorry Sew On - it is a gel product that is meant to minimize the appearance of scars. Would probably find it in the drugstore and I know Walmart carries it as well. Some people also use Bio .Oil. I have also tried that but again there is no way to know what it would have looked like if I had gone another way
I have used vitamin e oil from the beginning on my mastectomy scar and found it to be very effective. My scar is almost invisible. I don’t use capsules but the actual oil in a bottle. In saying this I’m like others who have said I don’t know what it would have looked like if I hadn’t used it.
Sew On Over 30 years ago when my daughter ended up with 6 stitches on her forehead someone (can't remember who) told me that massaging the scar would help it to become less visible because of the circulation you are bringing into the area by the massaging.
There are many products on the market that claim they help to minimize scars, but is it really the product or the massaging of the area while putting it on that does the trick?
LPPK , I had an OR nurse tell me the same thing, just about 10 years ago. She saw an old scar on my shin from where I’d gone through my front entrance (the base under the unistone had washed away, and I was the lucky one who discovered that - the hard way - about 8 years before that). Even though it was an old scar, she said to give it a vigourous rub every now and then - when I was watching TV, or when I was applying body lotion, or whenever I thought of it. I have to say, it has helped.
Hi so I was told that natural Shea butter was good for scarring.
Has anyone else heard this?
Sometimes I forget to put it on my portacath scar. As ppl can see it especially in the summer time when you wear tops that have a low neckline.
I still have chemo brain. I hear that can last up to 5 yrs. oh joy.
