Dear User,
The treatment of a 4 month old scar mainly revolves around means to modify scar modulation. For this you can start applying a combination cream of Heparin, Cepae Extracts and allantoin. Or a silicon gel based cream.
Secondly, you should avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
You should understand that all these scars improve with time. It is important for you to not indulge in any more scratching of the face. Drink plenty of fluids and take ample amount of fruits. Have patience. With all these measures you can expect your scar to settle down nicely by the end of one year.
