Looking After Your Burn Scar

Some burns can leave you with a scar for the rest of your life. There are some things you can do during the healing process to help minimise the appearance of your burn scar:

  • While the skin heals, keep the area clean and don’t apply any creams or greasy substances.†
  • Don’t burst any blisters as this can lead to infection.†
  • You should try to avoid exposing the damaged skin to direct sunlight as this may cause it to blister. It’s especially sensitive during the first year after the injury.†
  • Your healthcare professional will advise you about the best way to care for your burn.†
  • After your burn has healed you can apply a silicone treatment such as KELO-COTE® Spray. The spray formulation can be applied to the scar without rubbing or touching.

Kelo-Cote® Scar Treatment

KELO-COTE® is an advanced formula silicone treatment for the management and prevention of scars. It helps soften, flatten and smooth raised scars whilst maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the skin. It also reduces discolouration and redness whilst relieving the itching, discomfort and pain associated with scars. KELO-COTE® can be used on old and new scars. The recommended minimum treatment time is 60 to 90 days.
