I have a deep cut mark on my arm, the skin raised a little. It has turned white in colur now. Will this mark ever go? Is there any cream or scar removal treatment to make this mark permanently go away?
Cream or Treatments for Raised White Scar?

Scars: pigment loss is permanent
You have a mature elevated scar with permanent loss of pigment. It will tend to flatten with time. There is no way to repigment the scar. Intralesional steroid injections (dilute) or pulsed dye laser treatments will flatten the scar. Topical Retin A cream will cause some scar remodeling and improvement.
