Kenalog injections in the radix are not a current treatment modality. I would consider a thorough consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

Kenalog steroid scar injections

Kenalog has been used for decades to soften and flatten raised hard scars. If the injections are overdone the skin thins, looses pigment, develops small red spider vessels and the fat in the injected area can die. When used properly it is one of the most valuable tools a plastic surgeon has.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.
