Sore marks
My daughter is 16 years old and has sore marks on her body and legs. Because of this she only wears jeans, long skirts and dresses. She wont even swim if we go to the beach. I''ve tried bio-iol, tissue oil and so much other stuff that every one''s been recommending. Is there any thing ele she can use besides the one''s iv listed. My docter also recommended bio-iol but its been almost a year and still no change. There''s not even a little difference. Some one told me about snail jell but i''m not sure about it.

Hallo Mary
If she has very prominent scars that do not fade with time or if her scars form "keloid", an area of raised reddish tissue, it may be better to get a dermatologist's opinion. Often these scars need treatment with laser or cortisone injections or silicone gel sheeting.
