OTHER USE FOR VITAMIN E OIL
(Key West FL)
After I had a non-malignant cancer growth removed from under my chin, I was speaking with a friend of mine who had recently had knee surgery. I told him that the scar had healed but I had "bumps" along each side of it that looked bad and I didn't know what to do about it. He told me that after his knee surgery his doctor recommended that, when the scar fully healed, he could massage vitamin E oil into the area and the bumps along the incision scar should smooth out. He said he was successful with that treatment, so I decided to try it on the two bumps under my chin. I pricked a vitamin E capsule and squeezed the oil onto my forefinger and gently massaged it on the bumps, doing this a little bit each morning after I washed. I began two weeks ago and I now have only one bump and the other is also lessened and will probably disappear shortly!
Vita-dose.com answer: Thanks for the story. I have never heard of this technique before. Vitamin E is not so helpful for scars (this is proven), but bumps? Who knew? Thanks.
