    Can’t imagine what it would hurt - they used coconut butter on mine - whatever you use just keep pressing on the bumpy areas to break up the scare tissue beneath

    Hi Robin,

    I started with vaseline along my incision line, no problems. However my massage therapist recommended Aloe Vera gel and I found it worked just fine.

    HinRobin, try calendula cream it’ can be known as marigold cream too. Boots sell it. Use it on all my scars. Great healer.

    Hi Robin

    I was talking to my g.p fried about this, he said any moisturiser as long as it has no purfume in it. He also siad there is no proof bio oil is any better than normal moisturiser.

    I have used it since my op and my scar is great

    It will lube but doesn't do deep healing. Have you tried pure Vitamin E. It heals all the way to the bone and as a pure Vitamin I've never known anyone to be allergic. Its the main healing agent my entire PT recommends and I've not run across anyone that's had problems. Just don't use the E with additives like you often find in the vitamin section at the various retailers.
