My dermatologist recently removed a few "suspect" moles from my back. For one of those moles, he decided that more needed to be removed. When all was said and done, he left a 1-1/4" long incision that required stitches. As I was leaving their office, I was given a prescription for an antibiotic cream, a prescription for pain killers, and an appointment to return and have the stitches removed.
When I returned for that follow-up appointment, the nurse took one look at my back and began to scold me for delaying the removal of my stitches. I was dumbfounded. I told her that I was there at the exact time they set my appointment for. She scoffed and checked my chart only to find that I was being truthful. She then looked at my incision again and asked me if I had used the antibiotic cream prescribed. I sheepishly admitted that I had shredded both prescriptions and had used Young Living's Lavender oil on the incision twice a day. She was very surprised. She said that she'd never seen an incision heal so quickly. She felt that I should have been there three days earlier to avoid her having to DIG the stitches out. Needless to say, she dug them out and I continued to use Lavender and then Idaho Balsam Fir to finish the healing (from the digging) and hopefully minimize the scarring. I'm still working on it, but I have to say that the scar looks much better than I ever thought it would. It's pretty faded and I hope one day gone!
