Dog bite on face, scar advice needed

My 6 yr old daughter was bitten by a dog on her cheek about 2 months ago, the scar is sunken but is still very red & though it has now healed she has a lump above it. I have been massaging as suggested with scar cream but is there anything else that will help with the colour & the lump? How long would scar tissue normally take to heal if that is the cause of the lump & how long should I wait before seeking other forms of treatments?

Hi Lisamarie1234! I'm not a skin expert, but I've had 4 girls of my own and I always used a vitamin E cream and sunscreen on scars. Some of them have taken months or even a year or two to blend in. Hope this helps!
