I need cream to remove scars

Patient

Q: I'm a Canadian girl travelling Vietnam, in Hoi An at the moment and have been in a scooter accident. What is the best over the counter scar cream I can get here?

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

If you have an open scar that can get infected, you can use Soframycin to help you prevent infection. If you are looking for lightening of the scar, you can use Mometasone cream to help you lighten the scar.

These should be able to help you. All the best. If you do not get better, talk to a Doctor.
