    Aspirin paste for hypertrophic scarring?



    I have hypertrophic scarring on my industrial and I went to my piercer and an apprentice there said to use aspirin paste 3 times a day for a week to get rid of it. Is this a good idea? My industrial is only 2 months old. </p>

    No no no bad idea! Its very acidic. You can try chamomile compresses. Take a pure chamomile tea bag soaked in warm paper and gently press it into the bump. </p>

    Use tea tree oil instead.

    I've had great results with apple cider vinegar as well but you should do a skin test first to see if you can use it a full strength or will have to dilute it. </p>

    I've heard the Crazy Chameleon soap sold on BAF can help with hypertrophic scarring.</p>http://www.bodyartforms.com/productd...7&amp;index=20

    seconding the chamomile compress suggestion; I alternated between salt soaks and chamomile compresses (one in the morning, one at night) after I got hypertrophic scarring around my nostril piercing and the bump disappeared within a week. : )

    i'm always inclined to think that hypertrophic scarring results from pressure being unevenly distributed on the piercing. this happens all the time in industrials...perhaps changing jewelry would help. </p>

    Noo.</p>

    I always use diluted tea tree oil on mine. The smell is a bit strong but it always works for me. : )

    Not something to use on a healing piercings. I had a keloid scar from knee surgery years ago, and aspirin paste worked wonders on reducing the size and texture, but the wound was already healed. If the piercing was older - over a year old - it would be less harmful, but it is not something to use on a healing wound (which a piercing is). </p>
