Scarrs on face<br>bad scarrs of face
My daughter aged 5 was attached by our border collies about 3 months ago, she had plastic reconstructive surgery to fix her litle face. all is going good and no infection happened as yet and hopefully will not as the wounds has closed up completely. I use Bio Oil on her face now thrice a day, everday, BUT the scarring is still very visible, i heard about honey (that will leave her terribly sticky- she will start school this year). is there anything else i can try.
please- the damage to her face has kind of made her shy and she hides from strangers and some friends. Pls let me know if i can maybe try something else.

There are very rapid developments taking place in scar treatments. Please rely on your plastic surgeon for advice and dont try things which will cause more harm than good.
