Daughter has scar on cheek from a puppy scratch. Was happy to see Mederma with sunscreen because doctor said not to let scar get sun because it would scar worse. However, daughter has very sensitive skin and after few days use it was red and itchy, so we discontinued use.
I started using this years ago after a major surgery. The original had a tough onion smell but worked well so continued. Now the smell is faint and offers a sunscreen so it will not make it worse in the sun. I used regular sunblock especially in Florida on it. But now with sunscreen can treat and protect, Takes a few weeks but noticed a big difference.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Mederma® Scar Cream plus SPF should be evenly applied and gently rubbed into scar 3 times daily for 8 weeks on new scars, and 3 times daily for 3-6 months on existing scars. Also apply Mederma® Scare Cream plus SPF to the scar before sun exposure. Children under 6 months of age: ask a doctor.
