Hi! I've been looking for a cheaper way to remove my scar. Can an over the counter ointment such as contractubex helps remove old scar? I can't wear shorts because of many scar in my legs. Thanks!
Can a Scar Removal Ointment Help Remove a Scar?

Scar removal ointments
Scar removal ointments at best provide a modest benefit. They can sometimes soften and flatten a scar, but do not remove them completely. Your scar should be assessed by a scar expert such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who will determine the exact type of scar and thus the best treatment options for it (e.g. surgery, cortisone injections, laser, subcision, fillers etc).
