I have a scar on the top of my foot from bunion surgery (two years ago) that is still tender. What can I do to move along the healing?
Nothing. At 2 years, healing is complete. Scar maturation usually occurs in half that time. At this point, you need to treat the scar tissue which is likely causing your pain. See your surgeon who can recommend treatments such as steroid injection, ultrasound therapy and if necessary, surgical scar revision or excision.
Avoid pressure. Go back and revisit your surgeon, you may have a keloid formation, or thick sensitive scar, mean while avoid pressure , and apply and rub over the scar with vit- e ointment to desensitize the scar area.
