One of my first posts here nearly 8 years ago involved my incision. It looked like a utility line in the street that had been reworked -- you know, before traffic flattens it out again. The thickened red tissue gradually "broke down," you might say, and is very soft.
I would suggest the vitamin E oil. Or some baby lotion.
