How to get rid of scar?

I am a writer, conducting research for a character who was severely burned, (2nd-3rd degree), over a great portion of her left side. This includes approx. 1 % forward and 1% back of center, and I need to know how a doctor would treat her scarring, especially if she became pregnant. Would the scar tissue crack, or split and bleed, as the pregnancy progressed? Would her doctor try and treat the scars with laser treatments, even while she is pregnant? A web site, or other article on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, MacKenzie Raye

Hello,

Intralesional steroid injection using triamcinolone will be a good choice. LASER therapy can also be effective.
Consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
