Infected hypertrophic scar . Rx: iv antibiotic , anti-pyretics , analgesia . Need to investigate if bony involvement. Once fever subsides , need to plan for revision of scar by surgeon. The source of infection could be unsterile practice of intra-lesional injection (need to probe during history taking) as it is rare for old scar to get infected by itself.

Thank you doctor
