Healing scars: A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues never are the same and so some scarring will always be there.

No: Wound healing is dependant upon a lot of factors and so although i can say that your scar should be completely healed in 10 or 15 days you might be a slow healer or diabetic or malnourished or just have an illness that is slowing your healing right now. If it has been more than 15 or 20 days, i would recommend you go see the doctor and find out why it's healing slowly.
