Can skin on finger (dermal ridges) stretch after wearing a coban wran with anti-inflam cream around the PIP joint for 1month?

last year I had a mild sprain(middle finger).In time healed pretty ok(did not splint it at the time,by the time I got to the dr it was a month old).I had a mild reinjury two months ago which caused finger to swell again.A dr recommended to coban wrap&use antiscar cream(4 possible internal scar after initial healing).Later I found out it was bad advice.In this time I also did massage & stretching.Now dermal ridges(not on the knuckle,but around the finger)on skin look stretched and more deep.
