Scar Healing

Hi all,

This is Kara's husband, or Hubby as I am known on her blog, talking to you again. As many of you may know, I had that accident about 4 months ago where I lost a part of my thumb. I still have this scar where there was extra space and scar tissue filled in. It really bugs me from day to day especially when I think of how dumb it was for me to do what I did. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew of some good stuff I could place on that scar to soften it up. It is a lot harder then normal tissue and it doesn't help that it is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have any idea, but I did find this online: Maybe it says something that can help you. I'm sorry it's still a pain for you.

When my nephew had a bad scar from surgery we were told to put vitamin E oil, or lotion with Vitamin E in it, on the scar. It seemed to work. Hope this helps. :-)

He did try the Vit E, but his skin had a reaction to it, so that's out. He also tried ScarZone cream, which has only helped a tiny bit. Thanks for that link Michelle :) I'm trying to remember another cream I've heard of for scars...I'm thinking something like Mederma or something? Anyone tried that?

I've never tried mederma, but sorry to hear it's still bugging you so much :(
My dh used corn huskers oil stuff to soften his hands when he had a reaction to some chemicals at work. Other than that, I'm out of ideas.
