Neosporan or Triactine. Helped with my scars.

Tea tree oil wins hands down. It's good for so many things. Nail fungus, insect bites, etc. It's a natural product made from the evergreen trees in Australia. There is shampoo, toothpaste and more made from it. Any natural product is far better than any that man can manufacture.

tea tree oil is an antiseptic, so its pretty caustic to keep applying to wounds--it kills the "new" healing cells as well as anything else. The America College of ER docs has published studies that show the best wound care to be flushing with water (with soap or not). Then the antibacterial ointment (use polysporin--many are allergic to neo mycin) keeps the wound moisturized & supple which is what is needed to reduce scaring. Also use sunblock after as sun increases scarring.

I know neosporin works well, and the generic brands of antibacterial ointment work just as well.

neosporin. After a bad accident, my face was messed up pretty bad. After tons of neosporin, you can hardly tell there are scars. The only problem is my facial hair doesn't grow as much on that side.

Cleaning properly, keeping clean, then any OTC first aid cream/ointment (can be generic even) Neosporin,TripleB or the likes. Then for prevention of undue scarring, apply Vitamin E oil once healing has begun. Aloe is also very good. Tea tree oil will be a bit inflammatory for open wounds, although it can be very healing for skin rashes, etc. I have used it for my anilmals with dilution rates of aloe & Calendula, but I suggest one does not use straight tea tree oil for anything without knowledge of the product. Take care~
