Hello Sita, thank you for the question in the HealthReplies.com forum.
Reading the complaints that you are feeling right now, they might be caused by:
Burns that have not healed completely
The occurrence of new wounds on the previous scar
Infection of the wound
Infection in the tissues under and around the wound
To ascertain which condition is currently being experienced by you, it is highly recommended that you further examine your injury to the doctor. After a direct examination by the doctor, then it can be decided what treatment or medical treatment should be done on your wound. If the situation is severe enough and requires further treatment, you might be consulted with a surgeon.
For the time being at home, you should make sure to always keep the wound dry and clean. Clean the liquid, blood or pus that may arise in the wound. Do not apply drugs or other substances that are not recommended by the doctor on the wound because it might make the wound worse. Cover the wound using a clean gauze cloth to prevent wounds from getting dirt from the outside environment. Henceforth, always follow instructions on how to treat wounds and also how the treatment is recommended by a doctor.
I hope this helps.
