Wound taping?

Hello doc

I would like to know which wound taping you recommend and use for new scars, as no pharmacy seems to know what it is. Is is microspore?

Also, what is your view on these "scar reducing" plasters?

Dear Scarred,

Any good supportive hypo-allergenic plaster can be used, such as Albufilm or Hypafix. The scar reducing plasters do work, although they are a lot less cost-effective.
