Hi ladies. Any magical cures to make the caesarean scar fade quickly? Mine is still quite red and it’s been 2 years. Thanks.

  • I use ‘bio oil’ the oil from inside a vit E capsule is much stronger than any vit e cream and the best is home grown Aloe vera scraped fresh from plant and applied after shower/bath…I have NO stretch marks and all scars have gone!

  • I used Bio Oil on my scars, massaging it in works best. They were reduced by a noticeable difference after a few weeks. I used a good quality Oil and applied it after my showers. I also read the Beeswax and Sunflower Oil idea below and I think it sounds like something worth giving a go as well. I hope you find a product that suits you and helps. Good luck.

  • Vitamine E is very good but make sure it is the highest quality you can get.

  • You could try vitamin e oil. You can buy a jar, or empty the contents of a casual

  • I used bio oil on my scar and you can no longer see it unless you really look for it. But as stated below you do need to massage it on for a minute or two.

  • You could try something like bio oil? I’ve never used anything on mine, but after an extra big incision due to an emergency c/s it’s never going to be pretty :/

  • Dr wheatgrass is unbelievable! http://Www.drweatgrass.com being that the scar is still red you have the best chance for healing.

  • Egg whites contain collagen it is a natural product
    for your skin , no harm in trying , Helps heal burn victims!!!

  • My sister in law used baby oil.

  • This is a product I make and you can make too. All you need is bees wax and sunflower oil. Bees wax can be purchased on eBay very reasonably and sunflower oil I usually pick up by the quart at the dollar store or can be purchased at the grocery store or eBay. I make mine using a crock-pot, but you can use a micro wave or double boiler. Depending on how much you want to make at each time depends on how much of each ingredient you will need. The basic recipe is 1 part bees wax to 2 parts sunflower oil. The end consistency should be a thick, spreadable, smooth butter. Melt the bees wax first until fluid, add sunflower oil and let heat stirring frequently until well blended, remove from heat and continue to stir until almost cool so the two ingredients stay well blended and spoon into a container with a tight fitting lid (an old sterilized jelly jar etc. works fine). Otherwise the oil will separate from the wax and you will have to pour the oil off the top and re-melt the wax and basically start over. To use: with freshly cleaned hands, (I use a sterile pop cycle stick to remove a small glob at a time from container, spread on a small piece of wax paper, with fingers smooth a small amount (a little goes a long way with this product) over affected area 2 times daily. It shouldn’t take long before you see results (approx 2 weeks), if results are seen even if only a small change keep using. It may not take them all the way down to white, but can lighten them. You will still have stretch marks as only surgical procedures can take them completely away. But lightened ones that aren’t so noticeable can sure make you feel a whole lot better. This product also works great on cuts, scrapes, burns, rashes, dry chapped lips, dry skin, bug bites and more. IN NO WAY IS THIS PRODUCT TO BE USED IN REPLACEMENT OF MEDICAL ADVICE! All I know is in personal experience it works, costs pennies on the dollar and doesn’t burn. DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO BEES WAX OR SUNFLOWER OIL! If you try it, I hope it works for you. I know another lady who sells a similar product online. I’m not sure what all her ingredients are because they are not all listed on the jar. She calls her product Beeswax Salve and her name is Julie Siemack, she has a Facebook page and a website for purchasing. She used to give out samples, but I’m not sure about that any more, since I found my recipe in an old 1800’s recipe book, I’ve been making and using my own with the same results. Good luck to you no matter who’s advice you use.

  • Bio oil. And rather than just applying it, massage the area in small circular movements.
