Set a regular routine that you will be able to follow.
Rehabilitation is individual.
Each scar changes differently.
The scar is fragile.
Be careful, because even excessive force can open the wound.
For up to two years.
That long after the injury one can still influence the quality of the scar.
Just hang in there.
Perseverance pays off, even if sometimes the results are not immediate.
The process of scarring varies from person to person. However, the basic principle is always using the “triple method” of working with scars. This includes the processes of pressure massage, stretching and lubrication, which complement each other to ensure that the scar develops in the best possible way for you.
All three practices complement each other. Only by combining them will you achieve better scar healing.
Itching is an uncomfortable and bothersome sensation that leads to compulsive scratching and accompanies the scar maturation process, most commonly in burns. It is related to the release of local factors that irritate peripheral nerves. It peaks around the sixth month after healing and its origin is multifactorial. Itching can limit quality of life, especially in children.
Treatment is based on routine measures, topical and general preparations. The available methods often need to be combined.
Dietary modification (no irritating foods)
more frequent ventilation of the room
minimise overheating and sweating
limit bathing, prefer showering with lukewarm water (no more than 35 °C), use non-irritating soaps and cotton towels
is based on intensive moisturizing (dry skin is more itchy), products with aloe vera are preferred
in acute cases cooling will help
massage also helps by reflex mechanism
Antihistamines and other medications (psychopharmaceuticals) prescribed by a specialist
Manifestations of neuropathic scar pain are common and are related to chaotic nerve ingrowth into the scar. Treatment is usually pharmacological and should be carried out by a specialist. Common analgesics (e.g. ibuprofen) usually have little effect on reducing pain.
