General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Useless for me
It smells funny and hasn't worked on me. I'm naturally olive and my stretch marks are light. I've also had them for years, so I am not sure if this product only works on new stretch marks.

Allergic Reaction to Mederma Scar gel
I've been using Mederma on my 6 year old son for a post operation scar along his hairline. It's been about 2 months of daily use, and tonight, he developed hot, raised, itchy hives where I applied the gel. And it appears he itched the scar, then touched his eyes and mouth because his eye swelled up and his tongue is fat! No breathing problems, so I gave him a benedryl and the swelling has gone down. I don't think we used it long enough to see any appreciable difference, but will discontinue use due to the severe allergic reaction.
