    Heylo all

    I was a self harmer for 6 years and am self harm free for about 2 months. However, I'm left with so many scars on my arms,legs and chest. I really want to lessen their visability.
    Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to do this?

  6. You can get some oil or some sort to reduce the severeness of the scars, make them fade away a tad.

    I've never, however, tried this. I may aswell though, my scars cause me dehydration since I hide them under a thick, warm fleace-y type thing everyday, unless I'm at home. Which is rare ...

    Unfortunetly, if the cut was deep/wide/so severe, it may be permament, if not, or even so, maybe they could fade with some treatment? Not laser treatment, although that is one option, course, financial wise, it'd be quite difficult for me, fourteen year old 'n' all. :p

    ANYWAY.

    Oils help, not sure which types, a thread has been created on scar reduction, as you realised some time after posting. Hope that becomes in use to you.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    I've started to use bio oil and I'm using Vitamin E lotion too.

    I do have some scars which obviously needed to be stitched up but I didn;t go to the hospital so weren't so the scars are gaping
