Could my painful swallowing be caused by the Mederma, or should I be concerned about infection? (photos)
1 year ago
I have a new scar on my neck from recent fusion surgery. I had an appointment with my neurosurgeon Monday and he recommended I begin using Maderma. I used it for the first time last night and woke up at around 3 a.m. with painful swallowing. There is no noticeable swelling of the scar or my neck.

I would discuss your symptoms with your surgeon immediately. I would recommend Plato's Scar Serum for your scars twice daily + laser.
Mederma does very little for scars. This needs lasers and skin care at this time. Mederma cannot cause any swallowing issues. Best, Dr. Emer.
