It ITCHES and looks like a liquid bandage. Found a lot of other people online complaining of the itching. But does it really work as well as it says?

I itched a lot and for red and blotchy with it also. I am having cosmetic surgery to remove the scar now instead.

I have a pretty nasty scar...Mederma helped, it flattened it out quite a bit and the color lightened from a medium pink to a couple shades closer to my skin. I have also used it on stretch marks, and for stretch marks, Mederma is excellent. I would recommend trying it.

If you don't like the itching from Mederma, try Silicone sheeting. Works as well or better than Mederma for scar remodeling and I have never had a patient complain of side effects from it. You can find it in the band aid aisle of most drug stores.

Thanks... the itching has subsided just a bit, but I don't like the layer it puts over your skin, esp. since it's on my face. Silicone sheeting - does that work well for old scars too?

It works pretty well on old scars....I think it works better than Mederma personally
