Three excellent home remedies to eliminate or attenuate scars from recent wounds on the skin are aloe and propolis, as they have properties that help to close the wound and make the skin more uniform. As for reducing the scab and itching of the scar, honey is a great natural remedy.
Before using any of these remedies for scarring, it is important to wash the area with saline solution to remove dirt and facilitate the action of the remedy.
1. Scar remedy with aloe
A great home remedy for scarring is to apply the aloe poultice on the region, because it contains a substance called mucilage, which in addition to facilitating healing also reduces the swelling of the place and destroys the microorganisms present, reducing the risk of infection and helping the scar to disappear faster.
- 1 aloe leaf;
1 gauze or clean compress.
Open the aloe leaf and remove the clear gel inside. Place over wound and cover with gauze or compress. The next day, wash the wound and repeat the process daily until the wound is completely healed.
2. Scar remedy with propolis
The other great home remedy for scarring is to apply a few drops of propolis to the wound or burn because it has antibacterial, healing and anti-inflammatory properties that facilitate the wound healing process. In addition, propolis is also an anesthetic, which leads to pain relief in the wound.
- 1 bottle of propolis extract;
- 1 clean gauze.
Put a few drops of the oil on clean gauze and cover the wound. Change the gauze 2 times a day, for example, morning and evening.
Propolis should not be used in individuals allergic to this substance, nor in children under 12 years of age.
3. Scar remedy with honey
Home remedy for scars with honey is a great healing agent, and can be used directly on the scar to reduce swelling, itching and prevent the formation of scabs.
- 1 clean gauze.
Place a little honey directly on the closed wound and wrap it with gauze. Let it act for up to 4 hours and then wash the area. Repeat the process 3 times in a row.
In cases of very large or deep scars, a physical therapist specializing in functional dermato should be consulted to initiate the appropriate treatment.
