i have 1-2-3rd degree burns on my hand, it has healed but there is a scar. I heard honey and nutmeg will help it not scar, any other suggestions.

Scars, even burn scars, usually fade with time. However, if you are in a hurry to fade these scars, then you can try some remedies.

  • Steep a spoon of chamomile in hot water. Strain it after five minutes. Let this cool a little. Now dip a piece of cotton in this and apply to your scars.
  • You can also use aloe vera to get rid of scars. Smooth aloe vera juice on your scars and leave it for half an hour. Then wash it off. Aloe vera gel s usually quite effective too.
  • Mash one ripe banana. Apply this pulp the areas where you have the burn scar. Leave it on for half an hour. Now wash it off.
  • Take a spoonful of sandalwood power. Now mix a few drops of rose water and form a paste. Apply this paste on the scars at bedtime. Keep the paste on in bed. Wash it off in the morning.
  • Peel and grate one cucumber. Squeeze it to extract the juice. Apply this juice to the affected areas. Let it dry on your face. Wash your face after half an hour.
  • Take the white of one egg. Beat it well. Now apply this to your scars. Let it dry. Wash it after it has dried completely and is stiff.
