What is this red mark near my scar and will it clear up? (Photo)

I noticed the mark after I took off my steri strips at day 10 I am now just over 3 weeks and it has not cleared up. To the touch I cannot feel anything as if it were a scab it appears to be under the skin.

Thanks for the photo. This will likely clear up and fade over time. Bring it ti the attention of you PS so that he or she can keep an eye on it  with you.

Best wishes.
