I have a scar that just formed on my right wrist as a result of a car accident. Would steroid creams help lighten the scar. I have an Rx for Betamethasone. As Drs say… Could this possibly do any 'harm ' if use liberally and for short period of time?

A strong topical steroid like betamethasone may provide a minimal amount of improvement. Basically, you're taking advantage of the side effect of prolonged use which is skin thinning. Use a small amount 2x daily for a month to know if it's working. Injectable steroids might work better. ...Read more

Having said that, if there are large areas of redness and itchiness and no open or bleeding wounds, betamethasone wouldn't be harmful if used sparingly. Also 25 mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help ease the reaction. ...Read more
