Normal for red Rhino scar?
This is normal. Scars can take 6 months to a year before they fade to the final result. Scars do re-model for 12 months. They are red because there is a robust blood supply to that scar to help deliver the cells necessary to help it re-model. I measure scar healing in months to years not days to weeks so be patient.
