Removal of a BCC

I have a scar following the removal of a BCC a few months ago. It feels lumpy whereas I would expect it to be flat. Why is it lumpy?

Abdominal Surgery

I had abdominal surgery in October last year and the vertical scar by my belly button is very pronounced and puckered. Is there anything that I can do to help it to flatten/reduce down or will it stay raised like this?

Knee replacement surgery

Hi,

I had knee replacement surgery last year and although the resulting scar is healing well, I just wondered if you have any recommendations on how to effectively improve the healing process?

Many thanks,

I spoke to my physio about it and she said that the scar tissue has attached itself to my ribs. Is there anything i can do about this at all? Thank yo...

Chickenpox

Both of my kids had chickenpox at the same time last year (thank goodness!), one has no scarring or anything and completely clear but the other child has a few marks and one particularly on their face, what would you advise – as I am hoping that she is young enough for it to be sorted maybe? (Cather...

My son is very reluctant to talk about it, let alone see a doctor but I managed to get him to the doctor who just said its his a...

Really hoping this is successful! But I was just wondering what's the best way of treating eczema in a baby? Are there c...
