Overcoming TB Gland Lump Scars That Do Not Go Away?
I want to ask, 3 years ago a lump in my neck broke and underwent treatment for approximately 6-7 months. 3 years later relapsed again and now is undergoing treatment again, but why for 3 years the scar is not like the original skin color, and it is very disturbing for me, is the scar from the rupture of the lump permanent?

Wounds that cause significant damage to the skin will leave scars after the healing process occurs. The severity of the scars formed depends on many things, namely:
1. the depth, breadth and location of the wound itself
2. factors of age, heredity and gender of sufferers
The scar will form scar tissue. There are several types of scar tissue, namely:
1. Keloid, namely scar tissue that is formed in excess so that its size exceeds the size of the wound.
2. Hypertrophy, the shape is similar to keloids, but does not grow beyond the wound.
3. Contractors, namely scar tissue that shrinks or shortens so that it damages the skin tissue and under the skin (such as muscles, blood vessels, nerves, etc.). Usually occurs in burns.
4. And others.
The medicine you consume for 6-7 months is a drug to inhibit the growth and development of the bacteria that causes it, not to treat scars formed by disease. Therefore, discuss your problem with a dermatologist. There are several medical methods that can be done to overcome them, namely dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, steroid injections, lasers, cyclic press pads and others. Treatment options are based on the severity of the scar, the availability of equipment and the cost.
Meanwhile, you can try to get rid of scars using honey or aloe. Eat lots of foods that contain vitamin E or supplements that contain vitamin E.
Thus hopefully useful.
