About a month and a half ago I got a scratch on my face, it's still pinkish. What creams should I use?

The scratch scabbed up and fell off in a week natrually but its been pink for about a month now with slight indentation. A dermtoligist prescribed me Rx wound cream called luxamend. Is this a better alternative then a steriod?

The Best Scar Care is a combination of silicone gel, peels, microneedling/prp

You can try lightening creams, biocorneum gel which has growth factors, sun screen, peels and microneedling/prp to help improve it's appearance. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Conservative treatment of early scars

I would start conservatively with Plato's Scar Serum twice daily to massage into the scars.
