I have not heard or read anything in the literature about this.
We know that taping, silicone sheeting and mederma are useful for improving scars.

In brief: No

Neither of these are particularly helpful.
Vigorous massage with cocoa butter or mederma, silicone gel sheeting (cicacare), and sun protection are the best home remedies.

In brief: Scar treatment

This is not a common nor is it a widely recommended treatment for scars.
Occlusive silicone gel sheeting and pressure offer the most consistent results for scar therapy.

In brief: No

Never heard of this.
It probably won't hurt. Most likely any improvement seen would be due to time which often improves the appearance of a scar and not vinegar and epsom saly.

In brief: Try Scar Fade

I recommend this product to my patients.
I don't have a financial interest in this company, for the record. www.scarfade.com consider a consultation with a (facial) plastic surgeon as there are other therapies available for an unsightly scar.
