Best Keloid Scar Treatment on a Child's Face?
My 2-year-old son had a cut below the infraorbital rim. It didn't look deep so we didn't have it stitched. It was healing well until a few weeks ago, when keloid scar tissue formed at one edge. The entire scar is about a half inch long. Should I take him to a plastic surgeon? Can anything be done at this point or should I wait until he's older - but then, will waiting only make it worse? Any advice?
Take your child to a plastic surgeon who will probably recommend a period of observation before revision.
