Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.
Can you share a picture please?
Thank you for sharing. The new skin is fine and is not infected. The color change is due to granulomatous tissue. Looks a healthy scar. You may use mederma advanced gel to dim the scar. Apply once daily for 4 weeks. It will get better.
Yes that's the vitamin E gel. It's fine too. Do not scratch it further. It should be fine.
You're most welcome.

The gel alone is fine.
I really doubt that. It usually gets better with time and if it gets infected then it might even get worse. So just look out for infection.
It might not be absolutely like your old skin but it can be so close to it that no one notices it. That's good enough for me.
Don't put make up over it for now. No need to massage. Just apply the gel gently as a thin layer.
Just apply the gel for 4 weeks. You may do that afterwards.
You can clean it with water and mild soap but you must dry it afterwards.
Hi there! There is hardly any difference when it comes to the efficacy of both. Gels are generally more convenient to use. It depends on what you feel comfortable with.
Vitamin E specifically is good for that. But there should not be any vitamin deficiency. So a nice balanced diet is also important here.
You may do that but it's too early to comment on the scar. Just wait for now and continue with treatment. If it persists then you might need to consult a plastic surgeon. But it's too early for that now.
It might increase the risk of infection. So it's a gamble for me.
Yes thats right .
Good morning. Yes that is an option but doesn't look like a keloid at the moment.
