You are having hypertrophic scar
You are embarrassed.
But, burning the lesion you have is not the treatment.
You are doing mistake.
I usually give intradermal steroid
injection in my patients having hypertrophic scar.
You consult dermatologist
to have proper treatment.
Silicone gel or hyaluronidase
gel would be applied to enhance the good result.
Remember, never traumatise or burn the scar.
There may become ulcer after burn on scar, which would take long time to heal.
I hope you got my answer.
