Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.
Our daughter fell and split her forehead over a year ago. She had 6 stitches on the inner layer and 10 on the surface. We used mederma consistently for the first 6 months, and sporadically since. I would say her scar is much lighter than it probably would have been without it. You can see it, but it's no the first thing you see when you look at her. I had stitches many years ago and we didn't have anything like that, and I will say her scar is already much lighter than mine.
