Hello, I have this scar on my chest from a mole that was removed a few years ago. Obviosuly it has not healed properly. I was able to lower the raisedness of it a little bit with silicone pads, but it doesnt appear to want diminish color or fad away at all. Are there any options for me besides expensive doctor treatments?

Removing Red and Rasied Scar
Hello. I think if you really want to get rid of the scar you will do the following.
1. Kenalog injections (for bumpiness).
2. Pulsed dye laser treatments (for reddish color).
While these may be considered expensive doctor treatments by you, they are going to give you the best chance of returning that scar to the same color and texture as the surrounding skin. Good luck.
