Thanks for writing in,
Usually after any injury
, our body heals by making excess structural proteins at the site. These structural proteins are felt as lump underneath the healed scar. Scars
wont fade away completely. There will be some amount of pigmentation left over and it is a very slow process. So, it may take almost 1-2 years for the color to fade and the scar to decrease in size.
Some patients have tendency to develop Keloid or Hypertrophic scar
after any cut injury. Such scars may cause cosmetic problem. Discuss with your doctor. If it is a keloid or hypertrophic scar which is causing the problem, your doctor might advice some local steroid
injection or laser treatment
Wish you a good health,
