Preparation H and scars
Preparation as far as I know only works on hemorrhoids. Scar treatment can vary from revision surgery, to topical agents or silicone sheeting, to name a few.
I would not advise this....
See a qualified surgeon to get proper advice. Using over the counter acid-containing products might make it worse.
