Reducding scarring

By the looks of things, I may end up with a nice big scar on my elbow and a small scar on my hand. Is there anyway to reduce the scars please?

    Rub moisturiser into them at least 3 x a day starting from as soon as wound has healed over.

    Coco butter is quite good. I have found it help a lot. But different things work for different people. I guess it just depends. Good luck :)

    Bio oil is quite good for scars

    If you go to your local pharmacy, they can often recommend things that are more beneficial to reducing scaring, I'm trying to think what they gave me now! - But yes, bio oil is quite good, as well as rubbing in coco butter in them 2/3x's a day!

    Best wishes

    Hi Melian

    Just to let you know about our article on scars and treatments in case it's helpful. You don't say if your scars are down to self-harm or not, but even though this article is in our SH section it has some useful info for all scars.

    Spanner :)
