New skin scar fade

Common Questions and Answers about New skin scar fade


Avatar m tn the scab fell off in about a week but no skin grew over the scar, so its red like if it were a kinda fresh wound anyone know the reason why the skin didnt grow back?
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 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 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 m tn (such as scar laser treatment) 6) When would be best to start new treatment to cover the scar? 7) What are the risks involved with the new treatments? Sorry for so many questions, but my mother is very sad and unhappy with the results and I would really like to be able to help her. Thank you very much in advance.
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 //, It doesn't seem like I can attach it here. 1) Was the "reconstructive" procedure the correct choice or should we have just let it heal without additional cutting? 2) Was removing the scab with hydrogen peroxide the wrong decision? 3) What caused the poor results? After the stitches were removed, the doctor recommended massaging the scar with Vaseline for a few minutes a day.
Avatar f tn Please don't worry about your scar, Iv'e had mine since 1982 and I am guessing they have improved since, mine is from one side to the other, my saying is "I'ts me, take me as I am or get ****". You may get looks and people may ask questions, it's your choice, just tell them you had a surgery that corrected you life and SMILE BIG. The vit/e works for some, but not for all and in time it will fade slowly, not completely tho. Soon you will not even notice it youself.
Avatar f tn I was born with gastroschisis 18 years ago and I have a huge horrible scar that never was suturated; moreover, I have no belly button. I'm wondering if there is someone in the same circumstances that can get in touch with me. I'm desperately looking for an expert reconstructive surgeon in this matter. Can someone has had a gastroschisis scar revision? I was told that the right surgeon is able to create a belly button, as well as remove this shocking scar. Please recommend me the right surgeon.
Avatar n tn If it's supposed to make the scar tissue more like regular skin, maybe the pigment will be more like regular skin tone as well. I know there are bleaching-type products used by dermatologists (had a friend with bad roseaca...she had a dermatologist use the bleaching stuff to reduce the red color), so maybe that's where you should look as the scar heals. I don't blame you for being vain...
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 m tn A new stretch mark from recent growth in height or weight gain and/or loss can look reddish or bluish purple. Over time they fade into your skin tone, becoming mostly unnoticeable. It won't look like that in a couple of months if that's what it is. If you're worried, run it by your pcp to be sure, but that's what it looks like to me too.
Avatar n tn Recently I have become very depressed over the acne marks/scars. They seem to take 9-12 mos to fade significantly. Luckily, make-up covers marks at this time & I know it could be so much worse-But doesn't make me feel any less depressed or better. Anyway, I'm very happy w/my derm & that she is putting me on Accutane, stating in 1 month. Getting married the end of this year & am sad that my acne marks may not be healed by then.
168348 tn?1379360675 I find if I use just a dab of darker powder and lightly touch only the scar using a Q tip (because my scar is lighter then my skin)... then use a big soft brush with a loose tranparent powder (Blending is key up my neck and down my chest a bit) then my scar is barely noticibable! I'd say it hides my scar by 75%. I use Sally Hanson Truly Loose Translucent Powder light to med in color. I get it from CVS if anyone is interested.
Avatar n tn I have tried many different remedies like hydroquinone, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, azelaic acid, arbutin, vit C, MSM pills, niacinamide, pycnogenol pills, mulberry and bearberry extracts etc. Nothing seems to remove the dark spots completely. The dark spots on my forhead fade fast but the ones on my chin and cheeks can last for 2 years. I get occasional pimples but the dark spots lasts so long so when the old ones have faded , they become replaced with new dark spots.
145992 tn?1341348674 I have alot of saggy skin with stretch marks-how lovely!! I hate it also! I also have a c-section scar which makes it look even better! LOL My daughter is 10 months old and I can say it got a little better but not alot! She was definitely worth it but I hate how ugly my stomach is now. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get rid of this please help! I have a feeling I am stuck with this forever!
Avatar f tn It has now been going on for almost two months. I have eliminated anything new or fairly new to me and my evnironment but to no avail. I have used Tea Tree Oil to the point it was dripping off of me. Then Gold Bond Powder, Cortizone cream, anti-itch cream, benedryl cream, Syrtec tablets, and even bug bite swabs containing Amonia. Surprisingly, even though it burned quite a bit, the Amonia helped alot. But, I still have the rash. My doctor cannot figure it out either.
Avatar n tn I would not use anything harsh like retinol on your skin because that typically causes more irritation especially to new skin. It may eventually clear on it's own if the burns weren't too deep. Contact me if you're interested in the cream my husband used for his lip!
Avatar f tn ive researched it but cant seem to figure out what it is and now im worried becouse it seems to be spreading but only on the skin in and around my tattoo. these spots look like if you had a mosquito bite that you never stopped scratching. my skin around it seems to feel a little thicker and kind of numb. they are flat and not bumpy. anyone have anything like this or any idea about it.
168348 tn?1379360675 I am using scar tapes and seems to be doing a good job. My surgeon recommended it to me instead of the other stuff.
Avatar m tn I think I finally don't get them because I haven't had a break out since i was 16 i think. However, it created a new problem for me,scar. It left me a scar in both corners of my mouth. They are pretty noticeable and i have been really so wanting to get rid of them. I am so embarrassed and insecure about it.I told my mom and sister about my issue and they would not take me seriously because they said that it is not even noticeable.
Avatar f tn 5 weeks ago and was feeling great the first 10 days or so and then I started to fade back into the sick/tired feeling. Still skin issues around and behind my ears (skin cracks open and weeps).
Avatar n tn Its a hard pea-sized bump under my skin, and can be pushed around a bit. I was thinking it was a cyst, but is it normal for it to develop within 8 hours? I normally have a bit of vaginal discharge, but it seems to have increased the past few days. Any ideas for what it might be? I don't think it is an STD because i havent seen my boyfriend since the summer... so haven't had sex since then ( he has been my only partner).
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar n tn The white patch and pain dissapear completely after few hours, without any tissue necrosis, ulcer or scar which may caused by chemical burn with acid or alkarine. On the skin of the forarm, the same solutin did not any white chage or pain. I did not used 30% H2O2, that may used in laboratory or rocket engin, which may cause more severe chemical burn as usual acid burn. A student told me that he experienced the pain with 30% H2O2 on the finger in the laboratory lasting almost a week.
Avatar f tn I know there are so many other more subtle AFO's out there, ones I can hide insdie my show for example. As this is all new to me I cant help think about my vanity and how I would like to find something that will keep my foot up but that no one will see. WHat about swimming and wearing sandals? Will I be able to snowboward again? So many questions are going through my mind right now.
Avatar m tn Does anybody have ANY new suggestions to get rid/fade them? I have gone to two dermatologists and a skin clinic and they have all said there is nothing i can do to get rid of them. I cant settle for that though, I want my life back! Its summer and I would like to go to the lake, wear shorts, etc. I thought about making an appointment at a skin and laser office.
Avatar m tn She said skin regenerates itself and it will return to its normal state. Thickness etc. Dead skin cells are replaced by new skin cells. And not to worry myself. Also I can continue to have sex and masturbate if required but to use lube. I'm abstaining from sex til I feel confident and masturbating less but it was great to hear these confident words. So all of you who are worried. Don't be. Relax. I used hydrocortisone 1% for 4 to 5 weeks. Also occasionally for roughly a year.
Avatar n tn i grew up in Jamaica (in fact i only just moved here to new york couple months ago) my itchy skin actually startedin the summer so i doubt it has anything to do with hot or cold for me. ive tried swithcin soaps, hot water, cold water even using bleach when i shower (that was themost effective though my skin did still itch but not as severe). I hesitate every time i plan on taking a shower and when i do my WHOLE BODY ITCHES.
Avatar m tn You are not only damaging your skin but predisposing it to infections and scarring. Pinkish scars take longer to fade and unfortunately on us darker skinned folks, they stand out a little more but don't worry, it will fade eventually. Personally, I've not found anything that really helps fade them more quickly than normal. Bio-oil does but not by much and only if you use it on fairly new scars. Do you moisturize your skin? If not, you should do so as this will help.
