Scars

Last Monday my son split his lip open. When my ex took my son to the E.R. They opted to glue the wound shut.

Now that it's healing, I am worried about a scar. My son looks like he had a clefted lip :( He has SUCH a sweet face.

Does anyone know of any home remedies, or anything OTHER than madermia, (we plan on using that just as soon as the wound fully heals) that we could use to help diminish the appearance of the scar?

Natural Honey is great for minimising scars, especially if you can put it on the wound before its healed.

Worth a shot

Awesome! I will have to get some, as I don't like honey, so I'll have to buy some.

Thanks for the great tip!

Just make sure it is natural honey, preferably from the grower (is that what you call them? Lol)

Alternatively, put Bepanthen on the cut, its a nipple care and nappy rash cream.

His father, my ex, got him a 70CC 4wheeler. It's smaller than an adult 4wheeler, but more powerful than the powerwheels that we have here at home for him.

Apparently he was unsupervised with the wheeler, or my ex watched him as he ran into a tree, thus splitting his lip. :(

Over here there is some stuff called "Bio" oil, I havent tried it but I saw an advert for it reducing the appearance of scars?

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

Moxie, good news is that scars on the lips seem to diminish easier and better than other places. I split my lip when I was a kid and you have to look real hard for the scar.


Scars are like tattoos with better stories!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
