Does aloe Vera gel, cocoa butter lotion, or vitamin E oil heal mild scars on the face and body?

Does aloe Vera gel, cocoa butter lotion, or vitamin E oil heal mild scars on the face and body?

Possible: There is no proven scar healer out there that I am aware of, keeping the area clean and soft should help with decreasing the amount of scar build up. I have always thought that sunblock for the first year on a scar is important to avoid excessive scarring as sun damage can exacerbate a scar. Most scars overtime though do improve, the body usually does a good job at healing itself. ...Read more

Also, make sure chemical free on clothing/bedding/burp rags - anything that could touch his face. No dryer sheets, use scent-free detergents and face washes. Finally, moisturize often. ...Read more

Oily products can make tinea versicolor worse .. Can loprox (ciclopirox) cream applied on face make it worse ?Is it an oily cream it contains mineral oil !

Acne: Don't try to figure out why you have acne. You almost never find out. If your periods are okay, it is probably not "hormones." The stuff you are using for it is basically worthless. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid don't help, your physician can add spironolactone or try the oral contraceptive pill. Best wishes. ...Read more
