thanks for the reply Juin

looks like i have to live with this scars my whole life

You know, there's this gel called kelo-cote. I'm holding back on recommending it to anyone because it's pretty pricey and I don't want to give anyone false hope. My mom got it when she had surgery a while ago. She said I should try putting it on my acne but I didn't. Instead I put some on my old keloid scar I have and the new one that we healing, both from knives. I only put it on a hand full of times within the past month, so I can't say anything yet. But I will let you know if I get any positive results. maybe I should take photos.....

I don't think the gel is a miracle worker however. It might just lessen the bumps a slight bit.

I know about kelo-cote, Juin. Thanks anyway for reminding me that

it's a plaster type,so I find it is difficult to use, since the scars are on my back. i've searched like crazy around the internet, pharmacies, and derms, but nothing they can offer me besides kelo-cote silicone-type sheet.

Thanks for the link.

I'll have a look at it.
