My Three Year Old Has White Bumps on the Scar on His Chin. What is It? (photo)

My son split his chin open and got three stitches to close the wound in mid July. It is now September and he has developed white bumps on the scar. What are they and what can I do to help get rid of/ minimize the appearance of the bumps and the scar? Should I be worried?

Scar healing

I would allow the scar to heal at this point as it continues to epithelialize. Always keep close contact with your doctor to make sure wounds do not get infected.
