Burns

Posted by cludiakrogh @cludiakrogh, Aug 2, 2012

My son burned his leg a year ago. This year an infection erupted in the same area and it feels like rubber when you put pressure on it. Wh y does it feel so hard?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Skin Health group.

Scar tissue can sometimes feel rubbery or even hard to the touch until it softens over time. But keep an eye on it because newly healed areas can still get infected and have a tendency to break open more easily. My step-daughters scar on her arm still feels that way after years. I hope every thing goes O.K.

Thank you very much for your input. I feel much better knowing why it feels rubbery.
