Mary I am so sorry to hear of the continuing problems.
My one daughter has a very funky scar. There are three point depressions in it and at each one, another small scar has extended sideways like a comma, each about 2 inches long. It is incredible that these side scars look identical to the main scar in texture and color. They simply developed off the surgical scar. They look like three little smiles.
This is certainly due to her connective tissue issue whatever that is. And the scars don't keep her from wearing prom dresses that expose virtually the entire scar. She just doesn't care about the main scar or the side scars.
The other kid has a more normal scar though it is pretty wide at the bottom compared to the top. Not sure if that is usual or not. This kid has gotten minor scrapes that leave permanent scars. Again, that is the connective tissue thing they both seem to have.
There was never any redness or drainage so I can't speak to that.
Good luck with the girls. You will solve this.
