Hi, my name is Maria and i had a scar called a congenital nevi, thats what the surgeon told me anyway. So i decided to remove it since it had a risk of becoming a cancer cell though i know that is rare, and now i have a keloid scar, since the incision the doctors made was a little deep. I was wondering what i should do know? get a surgery, or some kind of laser treatment or do nothing, because alot of the treatments are not very helpful and can even make the scar worse, please help!!!

I used an expensive gel like this that I bought from a dermatologist’s
office.. I had cortisone injections too… AND I tried lazer and none of
them worked! 🙁 I want to look into some kind of fake skin… like a graft
or something… my whole left arm is covered in raised scars
Thanks for the help I got 73 stitches on my left side of my face
I am in the exact same boat as you. I wish this information was available
years ago. I am thinking of giving Kelo Cote advanced formula gel a try. 20
g tube costs under $27 at amazon.com. Healing time is 3-6 months for old
hypertrophied scars of the sort I have. Hope it works.

YEAH ) HUGE fracture and an enourmous scar. i love it.

I don’t know which one to chose since it’s on my face, I don’t want to make

treat it, could I get it removed all at once, rather then waiting months.
Thank you Doctor <3
i have a raised scar under my nose but above my mouth. i have had it for
about two years at first i was using mederma like when i first got it but i
stopped using it because i lost my tube of mederma. will it be too late for
my scarring to go down since it has been two years?
I’ve had a deep scar for a year now (raised but slightly flat) What’s the
best way to treat it??? from this video I’m going to start using vaseline
Hey Doctor can u please make a video about scars that are deep. My scar in
my eyebrow is NOT raised is actually the Opposite of it. My scar is long
and a lil deep. It annoys me because when i go out in the sun u could see
like how deep it is. Kinda like an acne scar, except the scar in longer.
Plz Help. Thxs.
Keloid scars are the worst. You can never fix them. It’s permanent.
This is superb information, thank you! Just one question. How old does the
scar have to be, before it’s considered too late to treat with milder, over
the counter treatments? I have a bothersome surgical scar that is nearly 4
Hello doctor, as your videos now getting more viewers we wish if you could
spend abit more time on your video and make it more informativ, like in
this video you talk about few different scars but most people dont no all
that typ of scars you talking is it simeller to their scars or not so if
you was showing some photos or pictuer of those scars you talked it was
much more helpful, thanks again for this video.
I love watching your videos! They are always interesting and helpful!
Greetings from Germany Vera
my sister had carpel tunnel surgery and a keloid formed in place of her
scar. she has been applying spectragel on it twice a day for 9 months now.
the scar is not as raised as before but its still raised, reddish and wide.
how much longer does she need to keep using spectragel or is there a better
option for her? thank you
