Finger scar healing - any recommendations

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

random one but wondering if anyone has any recommendations for any creams etc to help with the scar healing

would love something that somehow can make them less sensitive but guess that's impossible!?

 

got it caught in a log splitter nearly a year ago, but the scares which are all around the end are just so sensitive, can be the smallest knock or gain of sand or something just in the wrong spot 

 

any ideas welcome please

Can only say, time is the healer.

After popping my L index in similar style. The nerves took a couple of years to settle down. 

I still get odd sensations on the scar but it does get better.

I think that sums up the likely situation and outcome. As the pictures show, it is amazing how the body can heal. If the scar tissue is stiff/thick you could try regular moisturiser, worked in thoroughly. That's what I was told to do with my scar in my palm from surgery. I use something called "CeraVe SA Smoothing Cream".

I had extreme nerve damage in 3 finger in my right hand after I severed them.

 

The first year was pretty painful.  Anything touching the scars felt like and electric shock.

 

I tried to get used to it by pushing through the discomfort and rubbing my hands on different textures to reduce sensitivity.

 

It still hurts to this day and that will be three years in April since the mishap.

Following surgery on the right middle finger, any unexpected contact or a sudden knock was hugely painful for about 14, 15 months after. I'm at 21 months now, and it's a lot better.

 

Aggressive massage in hot water with an arnica cream afterwards as often as you can, and continue to be patient.
