How to remove ugly scratch marks

Post by pinky » Tue Apr 12, 2011 9:44 am

on my legs. I had some itchy spell from my waist down to both my legs and left many unslightly marks which have dried up and and some dropped off. Unfortunately, the marks are now slightly reddish and are very obvious. Is there any way to remove them and also any remedy for ichy skin (my skin bleed with so much scratching). :cry:
Thank you.

I usually put Aloe Vera gel for dd. It works wonders. :love:

the doctor told me it's not eczema but allergic to something (I don't remember changing any new detergent, shower cream, shampoo etc)
he gave me a cream to apply to reduce the itchiness and antibiotics.
I will still try the aloe vera gel though.

It will take some time to fade.

I had a similar attack on my leg (before CNY)- very itchy once comes into contact with wind/water, kept me awake for some nights too. In the end, got to apply steriod cream. But my constant scratching left a big patch of red mark. Now the reddish patch is less visible.
