Being a mom calls for a 24-hour duty, seven days a week. It’s a job that doesn’t pay, and quitting is not an option. But then you are rewarded with hugs, kisses, and smiles, and you are inspired to be the best mom ever. But being a mom includes more than reading the same story come bedtime. It takes more than that. If you’ve been blessed with a child with special needs like Kyle, to say that each day is a challenge is an understatement.
Naturally curious and playful, children will go traipsing in the mud and try to fit their small figures into even tinier spaces, scoring some scrapes and bruises in the process. Kids are prone to bruises and scratches, with all the running and playing they do. Thus, it is inevitable that your child might scrape his knees once in a while. They say it’s all part of growing up. As much as parents would want to watch over our child’s every move to make sure he is safe and healthy, it’s just not possible.

I even tried using Contractubex myself on a scar I had acquired through burns from baking as a pastry chef. Amazingly, it had become less visible. Yes, my scar is nearly invisible, as you can see on the picture above. Note too that my son's scar from the same thigh where he had his wounds is seen below without any visible scar.

Contractubex prevents excessive scar tissue leaving the skin more resilient. We noticed that it had truly helped reduced redness, itching and the felling of tension on Kyle’s scars. Contractubex was such a great help in alleviating dryness on his scars. It makes the scar smoother and improves his skin’s elasticity. It dissolved bruises, soften scars, reduces healing time, lessens swelling and it makes scars less visible. Soon enough, Kyle’s scars on his upper thigh and elbow seemed to have totally vanished. He also used to complain about the scar on his left foot for being itchy and he was ashamed of his scar. Had it not been for Contractubex, Kyle wouldn’t be convinced to wear his slippers again. And in doing so, he got his life back and was able to be fully recovered.
Three years had passed since it happened. Now eleven-year-old, Kyle luckily has moved on from that traumatic incident. He’s been very active in sports lately: he’s a badminton varsity in school and trains with the Marilag Futsal Team twice a week. We did not resort to skin grafting because it was pretty expensive. He’s wound has turned into a keloid. Thus, the remaining scar on his left foot will forever serve as a reminder for him to be more careful. But if he’s wearing a shoe, nobody could have guessed what Kyle’s been through because his other scars had been less visible, some luckily had totally disappeared. All of these, Kyle owes to Contractubex.

Nothing in this world is perfect or fail-safe. Our journey may be fraught with a lot of obstacles, heartaches even, but for as long as we have each other, we will prevail. Although each day unfolds unpredictably, knowing that we are constant in each other’s lives gives us confidence to live through it.
