My sternum incision has finally healed all the way – no more scabs. Now it just looks like a pink zipper running down my chest. While it was healing I put vitamin E on it… not as consistently as I should have, but I made an effort. Now that it’s healed I’m putting on Mederma. I’m proud of my battle wounds and have no qualms or hesitations about showing them when I wear a shirt, but I’m hoping the Mederma will fade out the pink zipper some. The tube says to apply 3-4 times a day for 8 weeks on new scars. That’s a lot of commitment! We’ll see how far I get before abandoning ship. Has anyone tried Mederma before? Does it work?
