The itching developed in a healed lesion definitely indicates that an irregular collagen
tissue has developed in subcutaneous tissue
.We call this a Keloid. This Keloid has to be histologically differetiated from a Hypertrophied Scar in that the Collagen fibres are regularly arranged in a Hypertrophied Scar.
There are many treatment options available. The Best treatment which has stood the test of time is Intralesional Steroid
Injection below the surface of Keloid by either a Gen. Surgeon/Dermatologist
Laser Removal/Surgical removal /Dermabration/Skin Grafting
and various options are available.
Recurrences are very common.
Pls consult a General Surgeon/Dermatologist .
wishing you a speedy recovery.,
