My son is 5 yrs old, over the summer he got a burn on his face near his eye, it healed and turned into a flat scar. Recently the scar has raised and kinda resembles excema-ish....
Idk what to do or wht this happened a couple months after it was healed...? please help. Thank you.

You may want to start with an OTC hydrocortisone cream for 5 to 7 days to see if it helps reduce the inflammation within the scar. If it is not improved, I suggest seeing your pediatrician.
