Permanent scar due to accidental use of hot wax on upper lips. Home remedies?

I had an upper lip waxing done and unfortunately the wax was too hot and in result of hot wax i got burnt. The burn was big and red. I didnt want it to be there so i started picking at it. Silly me i didnt know that if i picked and peeled it off it would leave a scar . So once it was all picked off it was painfull and moist and it got a little bigger. After about 5 days it was gone but it left a scar!!! I was so angry because i knew that scars are permanent and that you can get laer treatments done, but my mum wont take me to do that!! And i dont want to do that! I cant go out and buy any creams so i need something that i can use from home! Please help me, this scar has been here for three months and its not going anywhere! Please help me

Hello.There are good creams available in the market for scars,But unless you show it to a doctor(skin), the right cream cannot be started.I don't think LASER would be required,but your doctor will tell you the best.
