Yes we scar I think it has to do with healing slowly. I asked my last surgeon to just connect them so I can tell what they are a map of.

Hi I think being diabetic does have a lot to do with scarring. I have a lot on my arms from my daughter's dog scratching me. I have used one of the scar reducers with some and had pretty good results, but they do take time…like 3 months. I started using these after I had some minor surgery on skin cancers. I do find that the more I get my BG under control, the fewer scars I get. Hope this helps.

After the area heals use vit E on the area it really helps.

I also have been using royal jelly when I can find it at a good price.
Vit E Does a very good job.

The only thing that helps me is the cocoa butter,but that is not a very good solution. I would love to find something that really works.

I use CoCo Butter or Aloe Vera and it seems to minimize the appearance of scars. I do think the diabetes plays a part in the slower healing process. Your doctor might also be able to give you some good suggestions. When you first get the cut, put neosporen on it..not only will it kill any infection, it decrease the likelihood of scaring.

Hope this helps
