Hi,

It seems that your son may be having post traumatic hypertrphic scar. Probably keloid may be deveveloped. Do not worry. Consult dermatologist. After correct diagnosis, he might suggest proper treatment. Intralesional steroid injection or hyaluronidase application may be suggested. If scar revision is needed, he may suggest plastic surgeon consultation. I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
