The Doctors meet Eileen who suffered burns as a child and is still dealing with the after-effects many years later.
She tells us at times her scars make her feel "sad, disgusted, and frustrated." In addition to the emotional pain the scars are causing, she tells us the scars contract and can be very painful, irritated and itchy. She also says extreme hot or cold weather can also affect her scars.
Eileen looked into treatment options in her 20s and 30s and was told nothing could be done, now in her 40s, she is hoping there might be new advances that could help her and has come to The Doctors.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon and dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra are happy to tell Eileen that in the last 10 years there have medical advances which she may benefit from, including the use of a Co2 laser that can resurface scars. Dr. Batra says a series of laser treatments could possibly improve the texture, appearance, and softness of her scars. This could be followed with silicone sheeting and injections to help with the tightness of her scars.
The Doctors are pleased to welcome dermatological surgeon Dr. Snehal Amin who offers to treat Eileen at no charge to her.
