So I hurt my shoulder in soccer and had to go see a physiotherapist today. Since I was wearing a sports bra under my shirt, she asked me to remove my shirt so she could take a better look at my shoulder. I have a lot of self harm scars on my stomach from awhile ago. Don't worry, I've stopped cutting completely, but I still have the noticeable scars.
My physio asked me what happened, and I told her my friend's cat attacked me awhile ago. I'm not sure if she bought it or not? So I pulled up my leggings a little to cover most of them.
Do you think my physio will tell my parents?
Any advice on how I can get those nasty scars to fade?

It depends on how bad the scars were but if it wasn't extremely deep cutting they should fade farely well... Vitamin E (you can buy the liquid or the gel pills and cut them open) is good for your skin as well as just scar creams you can get from any drug store... They don't work miracles and I think are a little better if used in the beginning... Beyond that there is laser treatment for scars., and some people choose to get tattoos over scars but I would ONLY recommend that years down the road AND if you are into tattoos anyway. I think it helps that they are on your stomach where the skin is a bit more spongey and not thin like the top of your chest or hands/wrists, etc.. I have a keyloid scar on my chest from chickenpox as a kid and it's still very present but the worst of it was when I was about 12-20 years old.0
