Vit E: Try Vit E creams. Alternatively, you can buy the Vit E capsules. Pierce one with a pin and spread it over the scar. This should help reduce the scar. However, it may not take it all away.

Save your money: You need professional help. For your injuries. For your self-mutilation. A dermatologist, psychiatrist, psychologist. Meanwhile you can use anything for lubrication of skin. Bio oil is strictly for suckers.

Will coconut oil heal my scars?

Will coconut oil heal my scars?

Scar Healing: A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues never are the same and so some scarring will always be there.

Improve, not remove: Scars are permanent, but they improve with time. Pressure treatment, silicone sheeting and steroid injection may hasten their maturation. Don't waste your money--coconut oil won't help.

Avoid constipation: Make sure your stool is soft in consistency by drinking plenty of water, fruits, vegetables especially greens. Take a cup of yogurt twice daily which will supply good bacteriae to balance the colonic bacteriae.

I had 2nd degree burns on my hand the pig skin grafts peeled off. Is coconut oil ok to use on my new skin? How effective is it? I was burned by oil.

Not a fan of oils: Not sure how far out of the burn you are and how far the healing has progressed. So I'll answer as if the graft failed early on. I tend to be a fan of collagen dressings with or without grafts. I have been successful treating second degree burns with nothing except daily cleansing with dilute dakins solution and collagen gel as a primary dressing and then a non stick secondary.

How to get rid of burn scar?

How to get rid of burn scar?

Reduce not rid of: Scarring is a permanent entity and the only way the body can seal itself from the outside. Surgery is helpful in reduction-redirection of the scars, but still leaves a linear one. Use of silicone gel sheeting is often used in burn area to sooth, reduce redness, and soften during the healing time. Some doctor's use steroid injections if the scars are very hypertrophic (large). Seek md advice.
