Need to see it.: A picture = 1000 words (whereas u only get 100 letters), so consider HealthTap Prime or scheduling an appt w/ ur doctor 4 confirmation of the following: scar tissue has only 70% of strength of original skin & less blood flow; I think u r seeing redness & splitting bcuz ur skin is not growing back whole like when u were 3. The soreness is from nerve irritation which is normal but won't go away soon
