Looking for throat scar remedy: Hi. Five years ago I had emergency thyroid surgery to remove half the thyroid, which was eaten up by lymphoma. I went immediately into chemo and then a month of radiation. I ended up with a scar on my throat (I think it's a scar) that prevents food from going down. It doesn't hurt anymore but something as simple as bread can stick in my throat, choking me. My husband has done the heimlich many times on me but even more frightening is when I am alone and something sticks. I also get a bad cough from many things - sugary or spicy foods, wine, etc. I saw the cures for a sore throat but I don't think this is an infection, I think it's scar tissue. I asked at the Mayo where I was treated but the doc just looked at me. Is there any way to make this scar tissue (if that's what it is) go away? I tried ACV/honey for a short time but worried that the vinegar was irritating it, is that possible? Thanks so much. I send your site to people all the time. So great to have this access to natural cures.
Hi I'm recently in the processes of removing a mole on my bottom with ACV! I can't believe this but it does work!! It shrunk my mole and now I just have a scar I keep picking at it even though I know that's bad but I'm so impaticent it's going to be 2 weeks since I've started this remedy! So I was doing some research to cure wounds & prevent scars and I came across honey & tea tree oil! So I went to my local natural supplements shop and purchased the tea tree oil and wildflower honey does this work or should I try something else??( My mole was about 2inches big so I do not want a huge scar:( )
I have a medium sized keloid on my chest, as well as several on my shoulders that range in size. Has anyone had any luck using at home remedies such as Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Honey or Lemon Juice?

APPLY TWICE A WEEK ON THE SCARS.
Scars are not Evil
Scar tissue is like a mend that is lovingly applied to a favorite sweater. Mending involves additional materials and "stitching" that is different than the weave of the fabric to bind the edges to one another. In other words, it serves a purpose. To reduce a scar only requires the massage associated with the various oils and other substances that are used. Generally, unless one is applying a substance, one isn't rubbing a scar which makes just about anything you are rubbing onto your skin appear to help flatten scar tissue because it's actually the rubbing that is breaking it down. The problem is that breaking up scar tissue also weakens the mend.
The thickness of scar tissue can also create functional problems, some of which can be remedied by "moving" the scar which involves grafting to provide a more natural thickness at a specific, problematic site but which creates scars around the graft. The benefit is that it can be designed to move the scar tissue to areas where the additional thickness doesn't cause any problems.
Scars are GOOD things. If you don't like how they look, give them some love. Touch them - give them some hugs and a little massage with your very best oil. They deserve it.
I love this website! Lots of wonderful home remedies. I read about Iodine and went on ebay- I bought Povidone- Iodine first to try, and painted myself with it over every problem area of my skin- the colors were disappearing in 15 minutes or so. The bottle says for external use only and do not apply it over large areas of the skin. Well, I have not tried take it internally yet, but as I understand it, Povidone is used for prep surgeries, which means it is in contact with blood and internal organs. After my first application on small areas, I noticed that the morning after I could see significant improvement on my skin where there used to be acne-like pumps that I had for several years- some shrank and some went away. I then started using it on all scars and it seems to make them more smooth and heal better. Upon seeing that, I asked my husband to paint me all over my back- dry, flaky skin with red irritable spots- and over night, they became more smooth. So I started to use it more and more, sometimes it stains my clothes, but my skin seemed to be healing. Don't know if that is also indication of my iodine deficiency. I wonder if it works any differently from Lugol's. I do have signs of low thyroid function, like cold intolerance, poor circulation. Can you tell me if I can take the Povidone internally? How is it different from Lugol's?

After facial surgery on my nose I had scar tissue build up and the doctor did a number of steroid shots. However I still had scar tissue build-up so I did some research and came up with this process. I decided when I take my evening shower I would remove my make up and very carefully put castor oil on my nose and let the steam from the shower to help the oil penetrate deeper into my skin tissue, and I just leave the oil on my nose overnight. When I awake I take my morning shower and I put on surgical glove and very carefully apply 50% tea tree oil and 50 % lavender oil on my nose and slowly massage it in, while I'm still in the warm steamy shower and I allow my face to drip dry once I'm out of the shower. Please be very careful not to let this mixture ever get in your eyes. I have been super duper careful... Zero problems Anyhow, I'm seeing dramatic results in three months the scar tissue has dissolved a lot truly amazing and I'm seeing a finer definition to the area. I hope this information helps someone else!

I went to my rhuematologist and he said I have arthritis scar tissue in my left hand. I had thought it was lipoma as it was a lump in my palm. Any suggestions on how to shrink it??
Sounds kind of odd and gross, but if you use your pee (urine) on wounds that have scabbed over, it will eventually fade until you can't see that you ever had a wound in the first place! In 2013, I gashed my forehead pretty good with a stick. It was about an inch long and looked like a Nike symbol. A friend of mine told me to pee on the tip of my finger and put it on the scab every morning (fresh pee in the morning is the best). I did this and now, you can't even see that there was ever a scar. Pretty amazing!
To help fade the scars try Vitamin E Oil. I had very bad scars on the tops of my feet from an accident. After three years the scars were still very red, tender, and itched. I would cover the tops of my feet with the oil every night after I had washed them. After covering my feet with the oil I would put a large band aid on top of my feet to keep the oil from making a mess and keep it on my feet. I did this a couple of months and the scars faded, and was no longer tender or red. The scares are 80 to 90% better. My scars were very deep. Third degree burns. Yes, you can still see a little bit of the scar on my left foot, which was the worst. But the right foot you would never know that I had had a very bad scar there.
I just recently removed two moles that were on my chest area which have now turned a dark purplish color. I heard that vitamin E oil works well on them. I have been putting on the oil and rubbing it in at least 3 times a day for a week now and it seems to be working well on the scars. Has anyone used this method before and is this what how i should be applying it?
