scar revision/red bump
Hey there...I had a small scar revision done a month ago right below my cheek i had a raised red scar.. Just recently i developed a small red bump or pimpil looking thing right next to my scar...what could this be, could it be a cyst? I massage my scar daily and this bump concerns me, also should my scar be flat yet...thanks

   I would guess that this new bump is a pimple or clogged pore and has nothing to do with the scar or its revision.  Your best bet is not to massage or rub it, because that's exactly what will keep the bimp from going away by itself, which it certainly will do if you leave it alone.

Best.
