Brief Answer: Contratubex, vaniza Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the photograph. The scar is appearing superficial and can be treated with topical medication. I usually prescribe contratubex or vaniza cream ( silicon and allium based gels). Patients get good relief within a month or two. You can try either of these. Thank you

Thanks for the reply. I just want to know is this cream helpful to reduce the scar from the finger. There is neither pain nor itching in my finger. Its just a scar on my finger only. Is there any reaction after using this cream. Now please suggest me accordingly.
