Scar Tissue natural treatment
February 10 2016
A scar isn't bad if it's small or in a location that's easy to conceal. But when it's not, you may wonder if there's a way to treat it, other than hiding it under your clothes, that will make it go away or at least change how it looks. The truth is the scar will never completely go away. But there are some methods that can help reduce its size and change its appearance.
Scar tissue natural treatment questions
Q. I'm wondering if you know of any product that dissolves (or even discourages) scar tissue. The problem started with a C-Section about 20 years ago that materialized into major abdominal pain last June. The diagnosis said it was caused by excess scar tissue that had formed in the abdominal area, and some of it was surgically removed at that time. Now the symptoms are returning. Are you aware of any natural methods that could help?
A. I am not aware of any supplements that reduce scar tissue, although this is not an area I have studied closely.
Q. Due to an old external hemorrhoid, I believe I have some scar tissue beneath the skin surface and there is a little fleshy bump. The outer skin on the little bump is NOT scarred....it's normal skin. I don't want surgery, but I'm hoping there is an alternative. Can you recommend something to dissolve the scar tissue beneath the skin surface and make the little bump disappear? What about MSM cream? There are many products out there, but I'm not sure what would work in my case.

guidelines for treating Asian patients. Following injury, Asian skin has a
tendency towards hyper-pigmentation and scar formation, and therefore the
prevention of scarring is particularly important in Asian patients.
