Thanks for writing here.

Red lump after history of trauma suggest a hypertrophic scar.

At times it may form keloid.

It will be better to start treatment as early as possible.

Intralesional injection of steroid is best treatment.

Silicone contaning creams will also help in resoluition of scar but it will take some time.

I hope this will help you.Take care.
