First, let’s find out what causes scarring.

Tears, cuts, surgery, and acne can all result in scarring. But the real cause is an imbalance between replication rate of fibroblasts versus skin cells. Hence, when the fibroblasts replicate faster than the skin cells, this results in a dense network of fibroblasts commonly known as scar!

Second, let’s learn about preventing scarring?

  • Avoid exposing the healing wound to UV rays as this can mean a burn on top of a burn.
  • Then, put vitamin E (in any form convenient for you) on the skin after the wound has completely closed.
  • Furthermore, avoid too much movement or tension on the site of the wound as this may irritate the healing area.
  • Also, put hydrogen peroxide on the wound as first aid to prevent the spread of bacteria.
  • Likewise, use topical antibiotic to speed the healing process and prevent infection.
  • In addition, do not scratch or pick on your wound, especially when it’s healing.
  • Finally, use over the counter creams specially formulated for minimizing scar appearance.
