Hi dear you 8 year old daughter having a scar on leg, secondary to a wound,and now blister under scar .one important thing you have not mentioned is on which part of the leg,however,scar will not go by sun screen cream,and by mederma ointment,although latter claims so.if scar is big and looks ugly it can be removed by plastic surgeon.the blister you mentioning under scar seems most probably due to infection,or allergic reaction to the ointment your using
