My friend just moved here from Venezuela. Shorly before she came, she was 20 weeks pregnant and her appendix burst. Infection spread throughout her entire body and she almost died. Unfortunately, she lost her precious baby boy and had to have several surgeries to remove her appendix and the infection. She is having a lot of trouble with pain and itching of her scars, and I know, psychologically they are an unwelcome reminder of her loss. Does anyone know of anything that can help right now with the pain and itching, and eventually, helping them to visibly heal?

Thankful to be a play-at-home-Mommee to my "cage-free" little monkeys, Sam, (1/21/07) and Jonas (8/17/09), a Wifee to my best friend, James, and excited to welcome our first girl-baby this summer. ***Families Are Forever!***

Vitamin E oil helps with scars. I'm sorry your friend has gone through this, sending healing vibes her way: I can't quite remember if it helped with the itching associated to scars though, maybe someone else knows more about that. But the Vit E does help the scar heal faster and look better.
