Brief Answer:
Hypertrophic scar

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

Perhaps it is just a hypertrophic scar and the raised white bumps are blocked glands/milia. Hypertrophic scars improve with time. I suggest you to use a topical preparation with allium cepae extract, heparin and allantoin. Use it twice daily. This would help soften the scar over time.

Here is link of one such product for more useful information :
