There are some creams I have heard of that can help, tho thats to help reduce scars you already have.

Ask your gp, if you have been in an accident they might suggest something as part of the treatment as a SOP.

If your hurting youself go to your gp anyway. Depression isnt a good thing.

Who said anything about the OP harming themselves?

OP Don't pick the scab and if it begins to scar use bio-oil or cocoa butter to help reduce the scarring

As your neg rep will inform you. Do not just assume...

You know what thought done...stuck a feather in the ground and thought it would grow a chicken.

It's the same as you thinking her cutting is coming from Self Harm. She could have just fell :rolleyes:

Don't irritate it or pick at scabs or anything.
Once the cut has healed over, vitamin E oil massages help - massages being the key word, the movement and manipulation of the tissue should help to break up the scar tissue. Bio Oil & Mederma also work.

What the Hell? They didn't assume the OP was self harming, they just mentioned it as a conditional after they gave the OP advice on what to do if they'd obtained the cut some other way.

OP - I think keeping the cut soft will help, so you could try regularly applying something like Sudocrem, which will also help if it hurts at all.

Thanks for that Thelfo.

Hope all this helps blackswan. Tho unless its a large cut, its unlikely to scar if you leave it well alone and dont pick at it. I did a quick google search and what people say about Vitamin E oil seems to be confirmed there.

Try not to worry about it, hell I have a massive scar on my back, makes a great talking point.

Vitamin E oil, cocoa butter.

I had some prescribed cream from the doctor's for pigmentation...but that's not really a scar.

Thanks for replies everyone, sorry you got negged too, makes me feels bad!
Anyway I really cannot have a scar in this place :s: Sometimes my skin doesn't scar exactly..it just kinda marks...like on my legs where my cat attacks me :p: So hopefully this other place wont mark at all, and I'll use some of that vitamen E stuff thankies

The poster said "if you are self harming". They assumed nothing, simply allowed their post to cover more than one eventuality.
