No its totally fine !! It always happens to me !
Another scab is going to grow back and it'll be just fine ... u just took the scab off before it completely healed underneath ... Just be more careful next time

I think as we get older our skin is not able to repair itself the way it used to. When I was in highschool it took me picking a huge cyst to leave scarring.. now as a 27 year old, essentially any pimple I squeeze and even some I completely leave alone, scar. It sucks. There are treatments that can help the appearance, though. I would check out the threads on scarring. I had good results with TCA cross on an ice-pick scar and dermarolling has improved some boxcar scars of mine. Good luck to you, I know how devastating scars can be. Just know you're not alone.
