Anonymous because its personal and I'm self conscious over it.
I had two operations on my stomach in the same place, they closed the scar the first time - they had to go back in through the same scar the second time.
I went for my out-patient appointment and the doctor told me the scar was a keloid and gave me some steroid tape to put over my scar, I've been using it for 7 months. There is no change, the scar still looks awful and is so painful. Its positioned where the waist of my clothes would rub on it, I've avoided wearing clothes that would irritate it but it is practically impossible and the pain is so annoying, like a severely itchy, sharp stinging pain constantly and it physically makes me say "ouch".
I'm still using the tape, I've used creams and body butter too (to try and help it fade) but nothing is working. The pain is more of a concern rather than the way it looks, does anyone know how I can stop it hurting?
Why are there so many?
