How to treat acid burn scars?

If you have suffered and acid burn and all that remains now is a scar, there is not much that you can do about it. The only thing you can do for a burn is to treat the injury itself, and if possible, minimize scarring. Scars that do occur however cannot really be gotten rid of. Most scars (burn scars in particular) last for life, although they tend to fade with time, and if the scar is a minor one, it may barely be noticeable in a few years’ time.

Therefore, if the scar left by your burn injury is not very noticeable, you should leave it alone and avoid thinking about it. Home remedies for burn scars exist, but they are not particularly effective. Substances such as aloe vera gel, honey, sandalwood paste, and rose water, are often used in various combinations in order to treat scars, but they are only marginally effective, especially if the scar is severe. If your scar is particularly severe or if it bothers you too much either due to its appearance or its interfering with movement, you can consult a cosmetic surgeon and explore the various surgical options available to treat the scar.
