I mixed cayenne & castor oil, soaked a piece of gauze in it & applied to scar. taped with cloth tape, put a glove finger over that and taped that up. I will take MSM internally. Sound allright, all? Will look into the willards, don't have any and it sounds very interesting... The scar tissue is really hard, especially where there were stitches...I work with my hands constantly so this is really important to me (my finger's getting...a little...warm...) Thanks to all who responded, you're a great bunch!
