Since I was a child I have a lot of scars due to insect bites. The scars on my legs are more than 10 years now. I lost my confidence because of this. I need your help. I'm getting married in 10 months and just hoping to wear my dress with confidence. I need to know the name of a product and the location or if it’s possible contact information. Thank you so much and may God Bless you all.

For insect bites, I would begin with a twice daily application of Melaquin for my patients.

Hi sharleen,

Congratulations on your wedding. :)

I hope the link above is helpful. You may also find the advice you need here: How to remove old insect bite scars on legs?

What type of scar do you have (dark, red, white)? Often the treatment will depend on this. For example, Hydroquinone is often used to fade dark scars. Photos would help, if you're able to provide them.

Good luck and enjoy your wedding!
