What Should You Do if You Have a Problem Scar?
Scars usually take between twelve and eighteen months to flatten and fade after injury but can take up to twenty four months. While there will always be some evidence of the injury some scars may cause more serious problems and it is worth seeking advice from your doctor, dermatologist, surgeon, nurse or pharmacist if the scar,
- Grows bigger
- Remains red/dark and raised and does not fade
- Causes discomfort, itching or pain
- Restricts movement of a joint
- Causes you distress because of its appearance
