Is this a keloid ? What exactly is this ?
You should show this to your doctor right away. There are several possibilities including hypertrophic or keloid scarring, infection, or a reaction to suture material. Let your doctor examine the area in person so that you can get a better answer and appropriate advice. Good luck.
