    Well, i'm from Portugal, and i don't get why you can't wear long sleeves here :p Besides, other than the fact of you being unconfortable with the scars, i see nothing wrong with that neither..

    I know how you feel I have a lot of scars on my left wrist I can't wear t-shirts outside or around my house because I don't want any one to see them.

    Well, you could try and get make up to cover them, but I'm not sure if there is actually anything that can speed up the healing process. Good luck. :hug:

    If it's just scars then using a decent foundation and/or cover up might help. To help the scars fade then something like bio-oil or rescue cream might help. If you have any open cuts then you'll have to be careful though - you can't use loads of stuff on broken skin.

    Good luck!
