Hello doc. Good morning, I have skin problems all over my right leg and left leg due to the itchy scar which has been scratched and is now black where I am. I am very uncomfortable. How do you make those black scars disappear? Please help.

Hello Dewita, Thank you for the question.

If you experience itching on certain body parts, you are not recommended to scratch the area. In addition to worsening the condition of the skin, this action can also cause minor skin injuries and inflammation of the surrounding skin. The existence of minor injuries or inflammation of the skin can cause darker skin discoloration (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). These scars that turn black are indeed not easy to handle and cannot disappear completely. However, you can use some ointments that contain corticosteroids, vitamin E, aloe vera, or honey. The use of ointments / creams may not necessarily produce maximum results. Do not hesitate to consult with a dermatologist if the scar does not go away. The doctor will do a check on your skin to find out the condition of the scar and recommend further treatment. Please avoid the habit of scratching itchy skin later on. Make sure you also use sunscreen if you are outdoors.

Hope this information helps.
