Noted dermatologist, Dr. Neil Schultz, recently described various treatments for raised scars. In addition to injections of cortisone and laser, he talked about recent studies showing positive results from cryotherapy, the use of a very cold probe applied to the lesion. Other treatments include the application of silicone sheets, and in very difficult cases, excision and treatment with radiation. But his most recent discovery is one he learned from one of his patients – the application of iodine on tough hypertrophic scars. After six failed months of using conventional cortisone injections and laser treatments, he tried the iodine treatment and it worked.
As Dr. Schultz says, I love it when I learn from you!
