Smile Rant about me + leg scars? - September 18th 2012, 02:43 PM

Hi - new to the forums, I joined because i think its nice to talk to people who've gone through similar experiences to myself and people close to me. I only ever cut myself during one week around 9 months ago - it was the worst thing I had ever done, my girlfriend who used to cut as well was extremely shaken as were my parents, and I'm slightly worried about summer as mostly I've been a fairly outdoorsy person.

So anyway, if you've been kind enough to keep reading my little rant - my scars are around my shin and the inside of my leg, over a fairly wide area, about 9 months old and a mix of both indented and raised, in words "useless" and "failure" - (i wasnt feeling particularly sane, and i DO regret it now)

So far i've been using Palmers Cocoa Butter Scar Serum and it seems to be working a bit, I was wondering what products are others using if any? And do they have decent results?

Thanks in advance guys. Also, feel free to message me if you want to chat, or if you feel you have a problem you want to talk to someone about - I regret what I did, and urge anybody considering self harm to talk to someone, either irl or online.

Hey there,

Welcome to Teenhelp! I am glad that you have found the site and I hope that you enjoy all that it has to offer. I can understand regretting your past self harm but in the end you should not be too hard on yourself for such things. Instead, you should learn from it and move forward.

I have not used much of anything for my own scars but I have heard good things about Bio oil and Mederma. In fact, my mom tried getting me to buy one of those products at one point in time but I knew I would not use them on a regular basis and it would be a waste of money.

If you need anything please feel free to vm/pm me.
