really? The head dermatologist specifically said to apply hydrocortisone cream, although he did seem to be a bit of a nut. Where did you find this information?

I did it and created a wound, there was no raised scar for about a week
Now my scar on my nose feels more raised then ever
It looks really uneven
Worst of all it is bright pink
I have a lovely pink RAISED scar on my nose and who knows how long til it fades
I am hoping the scar will shrink down a bit but for now
I really need to know how to help fade the pinkness without doing further damage!
Appreciate any replies!

Anyways, back on topic,
I had a pimple that I was very very sure would turn into a hypertrophic and it probably would have if I didn't mess with it, it was like a firm red bulb, I tried various things, breaking multivitamins tablets and spreading the powder, I dont think that did anything,
I tried popping it with a peg and messing with it and making it bleed, I thought my own blood would be the best way to heal it so yea, then i squeezed it or something, I somehow prevented it from becoming one... I also remember trying my own saliva as a spot treatment, but I don't think that helped much, maybe it did.
now that picture of you with the red scar was not much different from what i'm talking about, and I was able to flatten it completely by just gently picking the excess of with my fingers, I'm taking 100% flat, it became a red mark and it has now faded 80% (5 months later) and will continue to fade to 100%. Mine was on the cheek however, and My guess is the cheek is not as stubborn? as the nose?.
but please don't get your hopes up, maybe I got lucky, I became religious at the time as well, maybe he helped.

What you need:
1) White Distilled Vinegar
3) Aloe Vera
4) Antibacterial Cream
5) About 1-2 weeks of downtime (unless you dont mind going out in public while its healing)
The steps to getting rid of it:
1) Dip the Q-Tip in the vinegar
2) Apply the Q-Tip against the hypertrophic scar and rub against it for about 10 seconds
3) Use the dry side of the Q-Tip and rub the vinegar nice even onto the scar. Dont be shy about it, rub against it firmly, not hard, but firmly enough to where you're not bending the Q-Tip. It is important that you do this in order to penetrate this scar and get into it. Do this for about 10 seconds as well.
4) Redip the vinger side of the Q-Tip into the vinegar and reapply it onto the scar with just as much firmness as you did with the dry side, but do it for about 30 seconds.
5) If you're doing it right, the scar will become white, or encircled by a white line. You may also bleed (this may not happen the first few times) but all of this is just signs that you're on the right path.
6) Apply Aloe Vera and/or Antibacterial Cream to the bump about 15-20 minutes after you're done. You should expect scabs, BUT DONT PICK AT IT, YOU MAY SCAR. Let theese creams do the "picking" for you.
Do this twice a day for about a week, or until you feel the bump has dissapated. Here's how my process went, I am currently on day 8.
day 1) nothing
day 2) nothing
day 3) texture of bump becomes scabbed, but otherwise nothing
day 4) stays scabbed with no signs of improvement
day 5) bump is really red. and after applying vinegar in the evening, for the first time, theres a little bleeding (and from there on out there would be bleeding everytime I applied the white distilled viengar).
day 6) wake up in the morning with a red marked bump. I mean, BRIGHT RED. Its still hard to tell whether the bump has eroded or not because of the scabby surface. It did feel a little smaller. In the evening, I bleed a lot. I decide to apply aloe vera 10 minutes after due to this (from here on out I applied aloe vera)
day 7) Groundhog Day. See day 6.
day 8) MILESTONE DAY. Today is day 8. The bump looks terrible, perhaps even worse than it did before. But I realize that the bump is no longer hypertrophic. It only feels hypertrophic because of the dry scab formed. The Bump is GONE, but the scabby, red, inflamed, remains. It looks like its going to take at least a couple weeks for it to be gone. I still intend on applying aloe vera from here on out until i feel its gone, but I am done applying the white distilled vinegar.
I am not the first one to do this vinegar experiment. And all of those who tried it before me were 100% satisfied with the results. Please be patient with the process.
Day 1 - Before
Day 8, Healing not Complete
Though it remains unsightly, the healing is not complete. I will apply neosporin and aloe vera from here on out until it completely heals. Otherwise, you can tell the hypertrophic scar is no longer hypertrophic.
2nd Round - done twice a day from 11/25/08-11/30/08
I've been applying a lot of aloe vera and then anti-bacterial cream. And I intend on doing this twice a day until that bright redness subsides, and the "wound" heals.
EDIT: DONT USE ALOE VERA OR ANTI-BACTERIAL CREAM TO THE AFFECTED AREA. IT IS TECHNICALLY AN OPEN WOUND. APPLY HYDROCORTISONE CREAM INSTEAD.
