on the top of hands.

Dr. Saha :

Did you use any medicine?

Dr. Saha :

Is the old cut of 2 years still red?

Customer:

yes

Dr. Saha :

Is the scar raised or is there any symp***** *****ke itching?

Customer:

a little backround, I have been dialyzing for 15 years now. can this have something to do with this

Customer:

not raised or no itching

Customer:

no symptoms,, just looks like age spots I work with my hand and they show to the customer. if I can fade the redness is what im looking for

Dr. Saha :

During healing there is growth of new tissues, blood vessels.

Dr. Saha :

Fresh tissues & increased blood supply can appear reddish.

Dr. Saha :

After some days or weeks, it would return to normal color.

Dr. Saha :

Sometimes, there can be hypertrophy of scar, inflammation.

Dr. Saha :

Dialysis is unlikely to be a factor.

Dr. Saha :

I would suggest to get an examination by a dermatologist.

Dr. Saha :

You can use hydrocortisone cream, meanwhile.

Dr. Saha :

This would help to reduce any inflammation there.

Customer:
