Hypertrophic Scar Getting Worse?

Recommended Posts

Posted

I've had this cystic acne scar, along with a few others, on my shoulder for many years now. This week, it has suddenly appeared much bigger (more protrusion) and with more color (red). This happens sometimes when I get acne nearby, but I don't feel or see a zit or whitehead nearby.

Is it possible for the scar to get this much worse out of nowhere? (see attached picture)

For possible treatment, I've had a few cortisone injections with a little success. Some of the color disipated and they flattened a bit. But these scars still drive me crazy. Has anyone had any luck with cryoshape for these types of scars?

Thanks.

It looks infected to me, it's possible there was some material left and it flared up, but it doesn't look like a scar to me.
