Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am sorry to hear about your daughter's condition.

Unfortunately there is no medicine to remove the scar. You need to wait for few more days to see how the scar is forming.

Sometimes triamcinalone injection is tried for hypertrophic scars and keloids.

I hope that answers your question.
