A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Yes, Mederma should work on the lesion. Mederma is a cream that helps to reduce the lesions on the skin and reduces the discoloration present.

If it does not help you, please see a Doctor after 5 days. Also, drink lots of water and have lots of fruits to help you.
