Help removing Scar from Injury

Hello dear All,
I was once sanding some metal sheets to polish them using a Electric sander. Suddenly the Sander went haywire and sawde through my Skin!.

The wound has healed now, But I got a Nice sacar as a Reminder.

The Scar is on my left hand between the wrist and base of thumb.Its about 13mm long, 3mm wide and Raised about 1mm from surface, Dark in color.

I 've come here with great hope. I've already searched through the forum as well as Intrnet, but most of the Remedies apply to acne Sacrring and not sacrs formed due to power tool injury!.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!.

Dear Sparks

Please use Thiosinaminum 6x twice daily. You can also externally apply thiosinaminum Q on the spot. Hopefully effects will be seen in a couple of months.

Hello everyone!,

Thanks for the reply maheeru,

I've alerady tred using household Cures like Fresh Lemon, Honey and baking soda.
Sadly they did not help a bit.

This time i was thinking something more Quick and Dirty.
Anyone tried a sandpaper?
Mr.Sparks last decade
I tired that sandpaper...

ouch ! it Hurts !, But It Works !

I read many articles about Micro Dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and power sanding.

Simple maths, What it does is just remove skin and let it recover gradually.

Suddenly, this nifty piece of 600 Grit Sandpaper caught my eye.....
It easily sands off metal...So more of skin too !

Go give it a try!

Hello again..
Yes believe me, My scar is much better now, Just in two sessions.

I guess I will completely vanish in a few more!

I have not been able to find Thiosinamun Q.. as its a trituration. Yes can find it in 6x.. am I right??

Hello Maya

6x is for internal use. Q or MT mother tincture is for external application. I think you can order it from this website. If you don't find still you can get thio cream(ingredient might be 1x or 2x)but there must not be other medicines.

BTW why are you looking for thiosinaminum ?

Coz I have bad burn scars all over and 30 yrs old. Too frightened to have PS.

Dear Mayahari

It's good thing that you wrote about burn scars. The above mentioned remedy might not be suitable to those kind of scars.

To suggest remedy can you give some more information like

1)How you got those burns(chemicals/electric/fire etc) and what's the extent(degree)of burns? .
2)How much time has passed since you got those burns?
3)what's the nature of scars?

Sorry Mr.Sparks for drifting off your thread. Hope you don't mind.

Hello maya and maheeru,

Just one question again,
I've sucessfully removed the 'raised' Scar using that Sandpaper trick.
But the skin and a bit area around is still discoloured.
Its Dark brown-like, Which irritates me a lot.

Please help.
Mr.Sparks last decade
I got burned in a fire and the scars are keloids. 30 yrs old. Did not go for ps as i am scared. my arm and chest are affected, no pain and have got used to them, but undoubtedly they are ugly. If any ointment can help shall be happy..
Mr Sparks, you may find a cream in your area which will lighten the mark. The sandpaper was a very risky job.

Hola Maya,
Sorry to hear of your embarassing burns.

I guess they cover a large area? Right ? Better should have gone for professional treatment rather than waiting so far...

Well......For the sandpaper, It went easier than i had thought. You just need a lot of courage, You are sracping off your own skin !.
But it works 100 %.

Can you suggest a name for the ointment you are talking about?
Mr.Sparks last decade
Hello Sparks

If sand paper works for you, finish off the scar with that. Then apply Calendula ointment externally on the spot for a couple of weeks. Also take Calendula 6x twice daily for a week. This will remove the abrasions and irritability at the spot.

Maya Hari:

You can try Causticum ointment externally and internally you can try it in low potency like 6c. As it stops its good action you'll need to increase the potency to 9c,then 12c etc. You go till 30 in this way. Don't forget to give periodical report.

Lastly it might be required to use thiosinaminum but only after seeing the results of causticum.

Thanks a lot maheeru,
I 'll try those and let you know.

Good luck for the treatment Maya.

Hello, I have a word scarred into my upper wrist, somewhat on the side. Ive had it for 2-3 years now. Ive changed alot and its embarrasing still having it. Ive only used 'newskin scar therapy' topical gel and it seems to be doing hardley anything at all and it is still very visable. Ive read about sandpapering it off and im VERY tempted to do it. I know i could get through the pain but im wondering if my scar will just come back worse or will it just leave a another big scar covering it up? My scar isnt raised very much, just alittle. Its almost and inch big. Its Not hard, its white (doesnt blend in with my tanned skin) Can anyone answer my question? It would be apreciated. I dont need to hear how dumb it would be to sandpaper it off i just need to know if itll come back worse or (HOPEFULLY) just come back with a scar looking like some sort of accident, the size or color doesnt matter i just want the word to be non visable.

If you want you can try out sandpaper on your discretion and report your success or lack of it. Please follow the instructions given a couple of posts above to help with abrasions/irritability.
maheeru last decade
If the name is not into deep dermal layers, sandpapering can generally help.
maheeru last decade
Welcome back maheeru and Sporty,

After 3 years of my accident(check the date of thread), i can personally verify that sandpaper method works 100%

My scar is hadrly visible now.
One more treatment and it wil vanish completely.

Don't overdo it.
Sand with 400 grit 2~3 mins at once, Use Ice in between. Let it heal for a MONTH before new 'Session'
Mr.Sparks last decade
THanks Mr. sparks. Good to know you succeeded with your attempt :).
