How can I treat my old scar? What medicine should I use? Can silicone gel help me?

I have a scar on my legs and knee for about 16 years. It's very embarracing. I want to wear short and skirts. Please tell me what to do about this. Thanks.

Thank you for posting your question. Without photos, it is hard to determine what kind of scars you have and what treatment may work best for you. If your scars are hyperpigmented scars, I would recommend starting with hydroquinone bleaching cream to lighten the color. Best of luck.
