Scars and Vitamin E

I hear it all the time from patients, “can I use vitamin E on my scars”?  Often times patients will ask me what is the best scar cream.  The answer is the best scar cream for you is the one that works best on you.  There are so many choices and one choice is vitamin E.  A recent study revealed six studies using vitamin E for scars.  In 3 studies they found a significant improvement in the scars appearance and the other 3 showed no improvement so I guess it’s a flip of a coin.  Heads you win – tails you lose.  The vitamin E is the same for everyone but it is the body part you place it on that varies.
