Best Treatment For Scar Tissue
I have been diagnosed with bilateral inguinal scarring that came off a klebsilella infection that went on for several months, what is the best treatment for scar tissue ?
Depends: If the infection affected your joint, you need to be followed for arthritis, get physical therapy and do home exercises. If the infection was related to diabetes or obesity, the treatment is to control your chronic disease, preventing recurrence.
