Avatar m tn Also, be sure to wear sunscreen to protect the new skin- sun exposure can change the color of the new skin. If you are concerned, you could see a dermatologist. Good luck.
Avatar n tn The length of time it takes for PIH to fade depends on how dark the PIH macule is compared to your skin tone. There are treatment options available to help fade postinflammatory hyperpigmentation more quickly. However, your acne should be under control before beginning any treatment. It is also recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. The sun may darken the discolorations and increase fading time. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Acne scars are often superficial and fade on their own within a year. Products I recommend to fade them faster are Bio-oil and Palmers Cocoa Butter Scar serum. Clinique make a product called post-blemish formula which fades the scar and discourages a new blemish from forming in the same place. They also make a wide range of cleansers and moisturisers which may help you. Also look into laser treatments and microdermabrasion which can help active acne and scarring.
Avatar n tn The product worked, but it left a very small scar, which I really could care less about, but with the scar came redness. It's now a year later and I still have a really distinguishable patch of redness on my cheek. I figured the redness would fade with time, but I thought it wouldn't take longer than a year. I used the product on two facial moles and it took about 7 months for the redness to fade on one, but the other has no signs of getting better. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Avatar m tn After it healed (FWIW I used neosporin) and I guess the scab fell off, a scar appeared in the form of a lighter skin tone where the circular break had occured. The rest of my shaft is some-what dark, so this spot-scar stands out TO ME, and is inappropriately but frequently bothersome. Well I just want to know if this lighter circle will ever fade back to my normal skin tone?
Avatar m tn Well I've heard of carpet burn on knees and elbows, but the neck is a new one! Because the skin on the neck doesn't exfoliate as quickly as the skin on knees or elbows, it may take several months for its size and pinkness to decrease and over a year for it to disappear completely. You're doing the right thing my putting vitamin E on the spot, but you may want to try Preparation H (yes, a hemorroidal med) that shrinks the skin - it does work.
Avatar f tn I have a scar tissue spot on the top of my head. It’s not raised, just a little rougher and darker than the surrounding skin. I went to two Dermatologists they both sent me home with: Clobetasol topical (.05%), that stuff basically softened my skin so I stoped using it. The second product is, Fluocinonide (.05%). I used these products for over a year and they didn’t help lighten or heal the area.
Avatar f tn There are a number of over the counter products you can try to help fade a scar, but none of them have proven results. There really isn't anything you can do, short of laser surgery or surgery, to get rid of a scar. Over time, a scar will fade on it's own, so if they are not too old, then try to be patient. Though all in all, scars tell a story and everyone has them, so it's not something to be ashamed of.
Avatar m tn These things help to keep your skin moisturized but the stretch marks are under the skin. Ive tried everything and i still have them. the only thing that works is time..they will fade. but they will never completely go away.
Avatar n tn i have acne and scar all over my face and i wonder, can our skin facial be immune to our skin? cause it's been in long term since i used it at the first time.
Avatar n tn I have a scar on my penis aroud the area of the foreskin. Im circumsized and have had no issues in the past. It was caused from friction in my earlier days as a kid masturbating. My new girlfriend asked my about it has becoame a bit of a mental issue........ Is there any creams or treatments you could reccomend to take away some of the visabilty?
Avatar f tn Hello, Topical treatment creams for scarring will take many months to fade away the scar and they are not very sure to get rid of scars. But you should continue the follow up with your doctor. If the scars persist then you can discuss the other treatment options mentioned above. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar m tn Either way, it is likely that the scar will fade with time. Since it is not in your direct line of sight, I do not feel it needs to be treated with an excimer laser. Gas permeable contact lenses, which are hard contacts but which allow oxygen through, correct astigmatism and may allow sharper and crisper vision than glasses.
Avatar m tn I've gotten a pimple about a month (or two) ago and I had to pop it because the pimple wouldn't disappear after giving it a week or so. The area that I've had pimple on was on my mole removed scar. An oval shaped scar, something that of box-scar if I'm correct. I've never had a pimple on the scar before until very recently and I got my mole removed when I was a child so this will be the first time having a pimple on the scar.
Avatar f tn I have a huge acne scar on my laugh line on my left cheek, The skin has been peeling off, but it still gets irritated easily and makes the scar look red. Will this prevent the scar from healing? Is this part of the healing process? It burns when I put any products on it and when I touch the area. It has been over a week since I first had the mark, but usually my scars don't get irritated so easily after a week. They are usually gone by then. Should I be worried that this might never fade?
Avatar f tn ) For some reason, my scar is now twice as big as it was to begin with and the skin in the surrounding area still has not fully healed. I am hoping with time things will resolve themselves but there are no guarantees. I went to a reputable cosmetic dermatologist. Affirm was explained to me as an easy fix for what was an almost unnoticeable problem but it turned out to be anything but the miracle cure I expected. Personally, I wish I had never gone through with it.
Avatar f tn If you had it for four months, it may take twice as long to fully heal and fade. The skin has over-produced collagen during those early healing stages, hence the soft bubble bump. Be careful not to pick, extract or over-exfoliate the area, because the scarring will become worse. Good luck!!
Avatar f tn I will look into the scar massage, thanks for the tips!
Avatar f tn Scars are particularly sensitive to sunlight and can sunburn faster than healthy skin, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Once a scar becomes sunburned, it can remain discolored or darkened and may not fade back to match the color of your healthy skin. For that reason, you would want to avoid the sun, wear protective clothing, and wear sun screen to protect your scar/skin.
Avatar m tn About a year ago I was suffering from mild acne with breakouts mainly occurring around my nose and upper lip. Every once and a while I would get a really large, red pimple/bump that did not have a head to it. They hurt very bad and were quite annoying, but would go away in about a weeks time. So one day, naturally one of these untouchable pimples grew on the side of my nose. This time however, the pimple stayed for about 5 months and I had to walk around with a giant bump on my nose.
Avatar m tn At a later date you could look into facial peels and/or laser surgery to help fade the scars even further (this will help a lot). They WILL fade and there are things to help reduce the scars. I hope this helps a little.
Avatar m tn Hello~By keeping your skin hydrated, you can help keep the elastin that your skin needs to keep from scarring. Using topical creams such as coconut oil will keep your skin moisturized and make stretch marks less likely. Even without treatment, almost all stretch marks will fade over time.

Avatar n tn Hey all, for a couple years now I have been getting these welt type infections on my my skin. Mainly on my chest. They seem kind of like zits, but they aren't. It starts off with a red spot and grown bigger, then turns hard and leaves a scar. Very rarely does it pus or ooz. Just becomes a hard pigmented scar and goes away after several months. Meaning it fads. Any idea what these are? I'm sick of going to the beach with a red spotted chest...
Avatar m tn The skin growth will come off with the scab, leaving healthy new skin. The darkened skin may be due to hyperpigmentation. Usually, liquid nitrogen treatment often leaves a permanent, white scar which is usually flat. You need to return to your doctor for the follow-up appointment for proper evaluation. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My treatment remedie was to lather on an anti-dantruff shampoo (Pert Plus w/Zinc) and leave it on overnight for 5 nights. On the 5th morning, I woke up with an extreme reddness and skin cracks. So I stopped. It's been 5 weeks since and the tinea versicolor (white spots) seem to disappear but Im left with botches of reddness all over my body. Some are darker than others, but none the less it looks horrible. Looks like someone poured hot oil on my body.
