  1. hello

    your history is suggestive of either keloid or hypertrophic scar.

    best way to remove these scars would be to get an intralesional steroid injection. I suggest you get the injection now when the disease is still active. this will give maximum response.

    you can visit any nearby dermatologist for the injection.
