Brief Answer:

Hypertrophic scar

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image. She has got a red and raised scar at the site of surgery - hypertrophic scar.

I suggest her to use a silicone gel, twice daily e.g either Biocorneum gel or Vaniza gel Or Kelo-cote gel, twice daily.

These are prescription medications and I advice you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
