Sometimes they can be injected with steroids to help them shrink, but the most definitive way is to remove them with an incision. If they don't bother you, it is ok to leave them alone, but if they bother you, see a doctor who can surgically treat them. ...Read more

Sometimes it is more painful and cause more harm to try to take it out at the time of suture removal. It should be more visible within the following weeks. If it is not or becomes a bother, let your doctor know. ...Read more
