Hypertrophic scar
I have hypertrophic scars on my arm. They are thick and tingling sometimes. The scars are a year old. I regularly apply sunscreen and moisturizer on it. They are still bumpy. Please suggest ways to completely vanish it? Can steriod injections be used clinically with doctors approval?
