Hypertrophic Scar from Abscess on Chin?
3 and a half weeks ago, I had an abscess on my chin caused by cellulitis. I took antibiotics and the doctor laced and drained it. The cellulitis is gone and the area is no longer inflamed. I am now left with a hard and painless lump. It is like an acne cyst but it isn't inflamed. It is not large but I still want to minimize it. Should I massage it and/or use silicone sheets? Should I do nothing and let it resolve on its own?
