Doctor insights on: Bubble on scar after 6 months
I have these things like little sores that come on my lower back and they are bubbled up when they go away they leave a scar what could this be?
Folliculitis: Sores on the skin are related to acne vulgarism, usually related to hormones, or follicular infections, which may leave a scar. Some of these infections are due to mrsa, a more aggressive form of staph infection. A culture of an active infection would be good, and your physician could treat you with an antibiotic based on that culture. Acne and folliculitis are both treatable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See your surgeon: Any injury to the skin, whether accidental or surgical (a controlled "injury") will lead to some scarring. The quality of the scar depends on many factors including the cause, the treatment and host factors. A "bubbling up" scar is described as "hypertrophic" and can be improved by early treatments as with topical scar creams, cortisone and certain lasers. See your physician for advice. ...Read more
I had surgery in december in my pelvic area. The scar is about 5 inches long and at one end it's hard and bubbles up. The top is soft and smooth. Should I be worried?
Plz C Srgn or Derm: What you are describing sounds like a hypertrophic scar (often confused with keloids). While this will not cause any problems, it can be unsightly. If you don't like the way it looks, it's important to intervene now. Rx options include creams, wearing a silicone 'band aid', laserrx, or steroid scar injections.

Scars never go away!: But the redness will fade (if kept out of the sun or tanning bed) over 6-12 months, and rarely longer. If the original injury is deep enough to cause a scar, the scar is permanent, but the scar will improve in appearance and red or pink will lighten over time. No treatments will make them disappear, so I hope you are paying for better, not "gone." disappear is a lie! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Massage, topical silicone and sunblock are reasonable ways to make the scar the best it can be. Remember uv energy [sunlight] can tan a scar and make it more noticeable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
