Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Your case needs to be handled well by a dermatologist. Examining the area and the skin is very imprortant to form a basis for treatment. Dermatologist may ask you to consult a plastic surgeon if he feels the need to. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
