My toddler has a scar -- is it safe to use Mederma for Kids on her?

Hi, Anon, and welcome to EmpowHer!!

Toddlers can sure get into a few scrapes, can't they?

How old is your daughter? If she is 2 or older, Mederma for Kids is safe to use on her. It is non-toxic. The website says "However, if your child experiences severe itching, swelling, or scar discoloration, discontinue use immediately. If symptoms persist, contact your pediatrician."

Does that help? Is she 2 yet?

Here's the Mederma For Kids web page if you are interested:


If she's too young to use it, just save it until she's 2 and use it on the scar then. It also helps old scars fade. But I will also say this, my sister's four children have had numerous lumps and bumps that left scars or even needed stitches during their younger years, and children's scars seem to fade amazingly well anyway. So if your little girl is younger than 2 and you have to wait, it may be that by the time she's 2, you see the scar fading anyway.
