1st/2nd degree burn from TheraFlu; how do I get rid of the burn scar? (Photo)

I had a cup of TheraFlu between my legs and it accidentally spilled on my bed while I was still sitting on it and I had got burned on my left butt cheek. This happened on September 2015 and I had tried Mederma, bleaching cream and Aloe Vera gel to get rid of the scars but it seems like it's not working. I don't want to have this on me forever. Is there another solution on how to get rid of it?

Hidef treatment to reduce dark scars

I would recommend a Hidef treatment that includes Plato's Scar Serum, Melapads, and Melarase PM followed by fractional lasers to help even out the color.

This scar should improve with combination treatment that includes laser and microneedling/PRP. See an expert for the best result.  Best, Dr. Emer
