I got a mole removed on my chin by shaving by a dermatologist and its not healing?

I got the mole removed at the end of August and its been about 3 months, the scar is still red, which I don't mind, but it is also raised. It is quite hard to cover. I was wondering why it is not flattening and becoming normal. Also, what should I use to speed up the healing process?

Mole removal and a chronic wound.

I would optimize the healing phase by applying aquaphor and returning to your physician to further treat the wound.
