Sometimes scars cause no perceptible problems. ...Read more

I know that's a long time. Maybe technology will change in your lifetime for this....not likely in mine though...PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) ...Read more

In addition, see if the pain gets better with ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen). Most importantly, you should call the doctor to set up an appointment to be evaluated. ...Read more
