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

My son came in from playing and his hands were red hot and very swollen. I thought because it was cold outside but it's been like this for hours.

WATCHFUL WAITING....: Mild redness, swelling and warm feeling is ok, as long as the boy is not in pain. Just keep an eye. If too much swelling, pain or any worsening, check with his pediatrician tomorrow.
