In the middle of June, I was skateboarding and fell and hit my knee on the concrete. It was pretty deep, and a big, bulging, purplish scar formed. I just started putting mederma on it. Will mederma change the color to white over time? Will it naturally turn white over time?

Scar on knee - how to fade it
I don't think Mederma will fade the scar for you any faster, though it may help with the texture modestly. Best to speak with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon about laser and/or surgical excision/revision of the scar.
