Hi Gail, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one would ideally like to examine the scars, determine the condition of the skin, and the age of your son.
The topical product Scar Science is a good product with studies that have demonstrated its effectiveness. First one needs to consider sun avoidance and a good SPF during the healing phase (which can take up to a year from the initial trauma). There is nothing stopping you using a combination of the Scar Science and the vitamin E oil topical. Most children heal extremely well after scarring and I would not be too concerned until at least 8 to 12 months have passed.
