Very sorry to note that you had so much troubled time. Hope the situation now is fine. But in future if you get any similar situation or bad times please consult a psychiatrist instead of harming yourself.
You don't have to feel embarrassed to tell your story to any doctor. Doctors are there to help patients and relieve their problems. They come across all kinds of patients. So feel free to consult doctors.
The management of scars depends on how bad are they. The very fact that you have asked for an advice indicates it must be visibly bad.
So please go for cosmetic surgery.
Only clean surgical scars without any secondary infection, generally do not need anything. After an year they almost become invisible.
Creams are less likely to help
Wish you good health

Hi amber
Thanks for your query in healthcare magic .
Amber the scar which you are talking about on your neck may be hypertrophied in nature , ie. raised above the surface of normal skin , or wide in nature due to no stitching done at the time of trauma.
There are various kinds of treatments that can be done for scars - depending upon the kind of scars we are treating .
The best alternative is to do Surgical revision of the scar with the best suturing done with minimal tissue handling by a plastic surgeon in the resting skin tension lines (RSTL) followed by resurfacing with Fractional CO2 Laser .In case of tendency of scars to hypertrophy we inject triamcinolone which reduces the tendency of hypertrophy of scars.
But what modality suits you the most i can say once i see your scar.
God Bless
