There are many over-the-counter creams, ointments, oils and gels to aid in the removal of scars such as vitamin E oil, bentonite clay and aloe vera, Positive Med reports. Prescription creams are available for itching or sensitive scars that are resistant to over-the-counter treatments.
The best treatments for a scar vary depending on the type and severity of the scar. Ask a dermatologist for advice, advises WebMD. Scarring from plastic surgery, acne or burns can are treated differently. Certain types of scars, like keloids or hypertrophic scars, may require injections along with topical creams. Other treatments include dermabrasion and laser treatment.
