Burn scars are common and can cause pigmentation. Our office usually begins patients on Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase creams to help with pigmentation and discoloration.

Difficult to advise you without a photograph. Given her very young age you need to avoid any additional psychological trauma from too much fussing over her scar, etc. Remember that most scars get better with time. You may wish to apply silicone containing scar gel and use sunscreen protection for the area for at least 12 months. Also, you may wish to get a consultation with a specialist in your area.
