Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.
The condition she is suffering from keloid or hypertrophic scar .
It can occur due to keloidal tendency.

Treatment can be cryotherapy, intralesional steroids, silicon gel etc.
With correct treatment the keloid can be treated effectively.
Earlier the treatment taken better are the results.

They are available at dermatology clinics.

Please consult a good dermatologist for proper examination and prescription medications.

Hope this helps.
