Scar from Infection

The scar will take several months to heal.  I would wait at least 3 to 4 months before you consult a board certified dermatologist to contemplate scar treatments.  Best, Dr. Green

You should wait a year or more for the scar to settle and soften before considering a scar revision. Bet of luck.
