It won't hurt.: Over the years companies have sold literally tons of coconut oil, Vitamin E oil and everything else to get rid of scars. The truth is nothing is known to work on all scars and severe scars may not be cured by anything short of lasers or plastic surgery. But, coconut oil is cheap and harmless so I would definitely give it a try before you consider lasers and other invasive things. Good luck :)
