Hello,.., Surgery leaves scars. That’s almost inevitable.scar formation also depends on suturing technique .. Ointment have to be applied soon after wound healing and it may take 6 months for complete result...,silicon gell is commonly recommend by doctors ..make sure wound has healed completely .. It shouldn't for pus otherwise.
