Cream for FUT Scar?


Recommended Posts

my post op instructions are to apply a silicone gel to the scar from 3 weeks post op to stimulate the healing process, silicone gel such as Vicatrix, Kelofibrase, Cicatrix or Bapscarcare were mentioned as possible applications and to use them for as long as the scar remains reddish.

From what I have read, Mederma is not recommended for newer scars but more so for stubborn scars that have coloration. If you use it too early, it can cause the scar to look even more red or shaded.

 

Many docs will recommend a steroid based cream for the lingering redness. They may need to provide a prescription because the over the counter steroid creams are low strength.

I was supplied with a cream to use for around 7 days after my transplant.

 

That was probably bacitracin ointment for preventing infection.
