Default Scar healing

I had HT performed just over 3 months ago, however, my donor scar area is quite tender, bumpy and a little sore in some areas. I still have scabs forming from time to time, mostly on my right side. Is this normal after three months?

Your scar hasn't healed completely yet, it usually takes about 6-7 months to see it flattened and pretty much at it's final stage. Soreness is also common again that will go away within the next few months. The scabs I'm not too worried about that also can happen from time to time, but if you're near your doctor it couldn't hurt going in just for a check up.

Try BIO oil. It helps the healing process. Do a google research.

Yes, I have BIO oil, but I'm going to wait until my scar has flattened before I start applying it.
