I have recently (approx 2 wks) had surgery on my face & neck and have some scars, especially underneath my chin, which also has bumps. My dr's instructions says to use Vitamin E lotion & also Mederma, Scarless or Scarguard. Has anyone used these products? I have not been able to find any information on Scarless, but have read positive and negative reviews on the other two.

Thanks for any help.

I use Manuka Honey for wounds and scars since it has both antibiotic and regenerative properties:

"External uses of Active Manuka Honey include:
First degree burn, second degree burn, third degree burn, chemical burns (after thoroughly washing off chemicals with cool water), wounds, infectious wounds, MRSA and/or VRE staph infected wounds, wounds that just wont heal with traditional medicine such as antibiotic ointments, cortison creams etc. old war wounds, amputation stump wounds, chronic wounds, post-operative scars (after caesarean, shoulder or hip operations, cosmetic surgery, tummy tuck, face lift, any surgery that leaves a scar...) first aid wound treatment, ulcers, decubitus ulcers, skin ulcer, diabetic foot ulcers, diabetic leg ulcers, diabetic wound, sores, bed sores, leg sores, scars, insect stings, insect bites, poison oak, poison ivy, minor cuts, abrasions, scratches, itches, severe adult or teenage acne..."

Manuka Honey

Firm but gentle massage of the suture lines after the sutures are removed will help the scars flatten nicely.

I hope you are getting along fine now and that you get the result you want!!!
