There are many options for this type of scar.  I suggest you seek a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in scar treatments.  Injectable steroids with or without 5-FU and microneedling/prp would be helpful in your case.  There are also laser options. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
