OTC scar products
There's lots of interest in OTC scar products...Band-Aid Scar Healing, Curad Scar Therapy, Neosporin Scar Solution, etc.
The body repairs wounds by producing fibrous tissue. Most scars are initially slightly raised...but flatten and fade within a year.
Sometimes the body puts down too much fibrous tissue and causes a thick raised scar. This is a hypertrophic scar.
