How To Treat Scars

CONTRACTUBEX ointment has been part of my skin care regimen since April of last year. You have  probably read on this blog what happened and why I had to undergo exploratory laparotomy sometime in April 2014. Aside from working on getting back to daily routines and gaining my strength, I also have to deal on the 3-4 inches scar below my navel. 

How To Treat Scars
Every time I look at the scar, it reminds me of all the blessings I received. Imagine, my body started to get poisoned when the appendicitis ruptured. Because of that I got infection on large intestines and peritoneum. But as I said I was thankful for all the love, care and support from my family especially from my mom and husband.

Last week, I met brave and inspiring people who shared their experiences dealing with life, difficulties and scar.

Review of Contractubex

Contractubex after abdominal surgery
Immediately, I was advised to apply Contractubex. This ointment helped my skin in healing process and reduces scarring. What I noticed during several months of application is the decrease in itchiness and tension. I don't even use binder one month after surgery. Although I have to be honest that at first I doubt it because I'm prone to keloid and there's nothing I can do about it. But when my aunt who also undergo exlap showed me her flawless abdomen, it changed my mind. You can't even notice the scar. This Contractunex 10 grams gel lasted about 6 months with daily to every other day use. Just a small amount and gently massage on the wound, especially on the sides of the wound/scar as per doctor advised.
