Vitamin E Question

I saw the post below but didn't know if anyone would go back to it later... I know E can help new, healing scars, but does it also work on older ones? I have a scar that is a little more than a year old on my leg from getting a mole removed.

I don't really mind scars (actually, I kind of like them, scar stories are always the best conversations :P), but this one is BRIGHT purple. Raised skin colored scars are one thing, but this one is a little icky looking. What if it is a REALLY old scar, like 10 years??

I googled this, but got mixed results. Anyone here tried this on year or older scars??

Re: Vitamin E Question

  • it's worth a try. can you get your hands on some mederma? we used to use that on our kids when i worked at children's hospital wound care..
  • I'd give it a try. I have a 6 month old scar that is pretty purpley and obvious on my hand and I'm it works on that. Also, I've heard lavender oil used neat can help with old scars.
