Would mederma or arnica help a chalazion scar?

Chalazion on 2 year old son left a red raised scar on his upper eyelid. It’s been there for a couple months now. Concerned whether scar will improve or should take back in for follow up to doctor.

You should be taking your child to a Eye MD ophthalmologist, ideally a pediatric ophthalmologist.  If a child gets a chalazion they are very prone to develop more. There is a new prescription eyelid cleaner called Avenova  that works extremely well to prevent more styes or chalazia.  This is link:  https://avenova.com/    Ask the Eye MD about it.  Unless the scar is affecting the eyelid position they will probably wait much longer to see how it flattens out.

Thank you for your response and helpful insight. I will schedule an appointment and ask about Avenova. I’m glad to hear there’s something out there.  I have the ocusoft wipes for now. Should I use these? Should I bother with mederma or arnica?
Wipes are helpful also.  I have no experience with mederma/arnica.
