Products For Treating Keloids From Scrape

1 post in this topic

I have some scrapes on my hand a few months ago, which have left some keloid scars. I have been using Scar Zone topical scar diminishing cream purchased from Rite Aid, which was recommended by a pharmacist there. Some information about Buy Scar Zone Topical Scar Diminishing Cream & More | Silicone and onion extract are the two ingredients the rite aid pharmacist was looking for, when she picked from a few products for me.

Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%) (Sunscreen), Zinc Oxide (3.93%) (Sunscreen), Dimethicone (4.00% Silicone) (Skin Protection)

Inactive Ingredients: Water (aqua), Hydrogenated Polydecene, PEG 30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, PEG 22 Dodecyl Glycol Copolymer, Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, PEG 8, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cetyl Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, PEG/PPG 20/15 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Silica, Octydodecanol, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Allium Cepa (Red Onion) Bulb Extract, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, DMDM Hydantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lauryl Glucoside, Phytonadione (Vitamin K1)

But last month my physician said the scar products that I could buy from any drug store would not help with reducing the keloids, and even if the keloids' appearance improved, it wouldn't be because of the scar creams.

Yesterday a cosmetic doctor said something nice about silicone gel sheeting, but she also said she preferred cream over sheeting. I came back and found this one: http://www.saveritem...s.html#reviews. Is Cica Care Silicone Gel Sheet a good product worth to try?

Can someone can provide more insights on this matter, and what products do work? Thanks!
