I suggest using silicone based scar gels until the scar has completely healed. You need a formal consultation with an expert. You can treat the scar with lasers, microneedling/prp, peels, and skin care. I suggest using skin protection and avoiding sun exposure to this area. Please see an expert for treatment.

Plato's scar serum for a burn scar

Seek medical care with a plastic surgeon if possible. I would apply local wound care followed by massage with Plato's Scar Serum twice daily to prevent scarring.
