Brief Answer:
Keloid

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
She has developed keloid.
It is a reactive condition in which fibrous tissue accumulates under skin.
Injection kenacort will be helpful.
The Injection needs to be given in the lesion once a month for 3 to 4 months.
Please meet a dermatologist and get it done.
Creams won't be effective.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
