This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Alright so number one;

Also wondering what is good with getting rid of self harm scars even if they are not going to go completely at least fade.
Thanks To Anyone Who Will Comment.

I'm going to go ahead and move this over to the general health thread, I think these questions would be better suited for there.


Resilient
1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

Minor burns can take a week to heal but deeper and more severe burns can take months or more and may scar. It also depends on how you have been treating the burn as if you aren't treating it properly, it could lead to an infection. You may want to check out this article on First Aid for Burns. That said, it's probably best to get checked out by your doctor if you are concerned about the burn.

Scars are scars so they can be difficult trying to make less visible. I've heard that bio oil might help.

Hope others can help you out!
