Avatar m tn I have a rather large scar that looks like it was from a rash that had been scratched, is there any cheap product or any everyday household items I can use to lessen the appearance or get rid of it?

Avatar f tn Hello, 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, This does not look like a melanoma. this will heal normally in time. Hyperpigmentation Removal treatments are used to eradicate darkened areas of the skin which may result from hormones, sun damage, injuries, skin-type characteristics, medications and more. Hyperpigmentation lesions can be anything from melasma/cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles.
Avatar n tn As for laser therapy, this may be of use also but look for a dermatologist with a good experience in terms of performing laser procedures. Laser therapy may burn skin and cause discolorations also. Bleaching creams may be used also but with close supervision as this may be abrasive.
Avatar m tn Hello, The treatment for such scars includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment. If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. 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.
Avatar f tn Moisturizers may even out the skin and keep the skin smooth. This may improve the appearance of the skin. I would not suggest that you apply any medicated creams on the area. If the symptoms persist, you would need to consult your doctor. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.

Avatar n tn I thought it was normal but after a week there is a brownish scar (thasts what i think it is) on my upper lip what do i do? What products can take this scar out? Is scar removel treatment considerable? Please help me!!
Avatar n tn The treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.Apply hydroquinone cream on this scar and it should go away in a few days to months.If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn Just remember, that it will still leave a scar. You can't get away with no scar at all. Another option is to get a tattoo to cover your scars. Just a few things to think about.
Avatar n tn I have a scar under my eye after a fight. Do creams really help? If yes, which one do you recommend. I've heard that applying honey on the scar is actually better than creams. Is that true? And also silicone gels is meant to be good.
Avatar n tn Hi doctor, 5 years ago, I had facelift, necklift, eyebrow lift, midface lift, and lower lids, and chin implant done. I have scar tissue all over my face. Even at the side of my nose where he says he didn't touch. AS for the chin, he put a jaw which I asked him to remove it just after a month after the operation. I had ultrasound for almost a year and half,with minimum results.
1629641 tn?1310707404 Skin resurfacing using lasers is also an option. But if it is an indented scar then collagen fillers and laser treatment are effective.

Avatar n tn I had a cleft surgery when I was a child, and now that I grown up I realized that the scar is getting more obvious and can really be seen..Can I undergo any scar removal surgery for my cleft scar?Is it safe,effective and can help me a lot? and if you can estimate it,by how much can it cost? thank you very much..
Avatar n tn About 2 months after the operation I started to realize that I had bumps on my scar line. I thought this was strange but normal considering I just had the operation 2 months ago. Now I am starting to worry that these bumps are permanent and not going to heal. My scar line down and around the frenulum has begun to smooth out but the bumps are still protruding. They feel much tougher and harder than the skin around them.
Avatar m tn Hi, i got a bug bite one year ago then i picked on it and it left a scar and hyperpigmented, it's a little smaller than a dime and on my cheek. a little more than a week ago i thought that if i picked on the scar again and try to heal it before it scarred that i could prevent any scars but it got worse. the day after i picked on it i applied some aloe vera from a plant, it healed pretty fast. a couple of days went by then a scab formed, it peeled off by itself.
