Hi, I'm 16 years old and I have two burns on my body, one is quite thick and the other is flat. I've had these burns since i was very small. I have heard of a lot of scar removal creams but I don't know which one will actually work for me. many of the creams are expensive as well so I don't want to spend that much. can you suggest what creams or ways i can fade them away?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
One medicine which has been advised by many dermatologists for scar diminishing is contractubex gel/cream. You can seek your dermatologist/surgeon’s opinion before using this cream. Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings. Severe scarrings may need skin grafting by a plastic surgeon.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
