Is my burn going to Scar?

Postby Courteth » Tue Jun 08, 2010 4:59 pm

I recently got burned on my back, its just one strip and I've been using neosporin on it. The blisters came and went and so did the scabs its a little over two weeks old. Its pretty much smooth now (I really have to try to feel for it) but the mark is still there. Is it going to scar? Its a brownish color with some red/pink areas. I dont know how to tell if its going to scar or not..and its big..like nine inches long and probably half an inch thick. I also dont know when to start using scar ointments instead of the neosporin. Hope someone can help..

Hello Courteth,

If the scar is healed completely then you can begin using scar creams and/or silicone sheets. I know burns can be a little iffy on how they heal up because it may be worse in some areas than it is in others. Since the scab has already fallen off the area should be healed for the most part so you should be able to begin using scar reduction products. :mrgreen:

I know i have burned myself a couple times... clumsy hee hee :oops: and some of my scars heal fine while others not so pretty when I don't use anything, so it really depends on how bad the burn was. I put some suggestions on really good scar creams below, but I know silicone sheets are probablly best because it will flatten the scar if it needs to be and bring some color back to the skin there.

I spoke to my supervisor today about burns and it reminded me of your post again :wink:

We were going over products that would be best for burns and we did some research and notice that products that hydrate the area more are a lot better at reducing burn scars.

Here are a few recommendations that hydrate the scar more than standard silicone sheets:

Avogel 8"x8" Scar Reduction Hydrogel Sheet: In addition to providing great scar reduction results, Avogel offers the added advantage of promoting hydration of the scar, which is known to be an essential element in scar reduction therapy. Click here>> http://bit.ly/bcQWeA

Avosil Scar Care Ointment: used on closed incisions or burns, Avosil prevents hypertrophic scarring, relieves pain and itching, moisturizes skin, and significantly improves scar appearance. Click here>> http://bit.ly/9IikoO

Hope this was helpful... HAPPY HEALING Courteth!!!!
