Loose chest skin

Hello everyone!
I was wondering whether you would be able to suggest or give me some advice. I currently own a horse and during the last winter, he developed a large hematoma on his chest. It has been healed except now he has a large flap of skin. It has been several months and while it became smaller, it has stopped shrinking. I was wondering whether you could suggest any remedies or ideas to help it heal and most importantly, whether it could heal. I really want it to get better as I cannot put a rug on him and am unable to compete at shows with him plus it seems to just get in the way.
All advice would be welcomed

Thank you
