Abstract

Management of hypertrophic and keloid scars can be difficult. This article presents an initial report on use of a glycerin-based gel sheeting to manage or prevent these scars. The results were comparable to those achieved with silicone sheeting, a typical treatment. Clinically, the glycerin-based sheeting was well tolerated, appeared to be effective, and was less expensive than the silicone sheeting. A prospective study will be done to confirm these findings.
