Treatment For Bumps / Scars On Nose - Images - Please Help!

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

When I was 16 - 18 (I am 24 now) I had a lot of break outs on my nose, some of which have stayed on as hideous bumpy scars. The bumps are relatively hard and make my nose feel rough. I know people tend to notice them because sometimes people tend to touch their nose when talking to me. Below are some images (the lighting makes them appear less severe than they really are)

What is the best treatment?

Thanks smile.png

Try this :) I've only used it twice and my skin looks much brighter and some of my scars are smoothing out a little.

A derma stamp might be a good option too. I would google derma stamping and do a little research on it before jumping into it.

I definitely know what you guys are going through. Been here in acne.org for so long and read so many studies, testimonies, etc. one things is for sure the nose is the worst part to have any type pf scarring be it indented or hypertrophic. It's true, only a minority of members here in acne.org have bumps on the nose or as well as indented scars and that's why there hasnt been much progress to finding a solution.

Though, i asked one person who had indented scars on his nose a long time ago if he had any bumps or hypertrophic scars on his nose. He said he "used to have those" and then he never replied back probably because he was looking for help and not looking forward to help others.

Anyway, i got 6 bumps on the rights side of my nose and 4 on the left. Not very pleasant as they are very noticable. To give a better image, it is like a pimple almost like a cyst but no redness. But they do become red easily, compared to the skin around them.

I havent done any lasers or things of the sort simply because im still a student (no fund) and have other major priorities.

I still visit acne.org once in a while hoping there's something new. But i really do hope for you and other nose scar sufferers especially bumps/hypertrophic scar sufferers find a solution.

Agne have you not tried fasting yet? This is my 2nd day, why dont you come along with me so we'll both share experiences. Its really hard to do fasting if you do it by yourself.

I guess this topic is rarely seen because only a very few persons are experiencing nose scars. I heard that 50%tca cpuld cure indents, but depending on nose scar location. The fatty part of the nose i heard responds well to this. I feel for you. I have a scar at my nose too.

http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/213865-the-solution-to-hypertrophic-scarring-the-vinegar-experiment/?page=1
read through the all the posts in the thread though..
And somewhere in youtube I saw a video by some old wizened dermatologist suggesting rubbing the raised scars with vaseline for a couple of minutes with vaseline (for a few months) should reduce the size of the scars (vaseline to prevent excess irritation from rubbing, he said)
I haven't tried any of these myself, even though I'm suffering from the same problem, but I have been considering doing it for quite sometime now. I'd think twice before burning off the scars with vinegar, try them on some other scars on less visible parts of your body and then the face. Keep in mind that skin on face and other parts of body are different (for me, skin on face tends to show little discolouration on scarring than on back/butt :/ )so you might have to try it on a bit of your face too.
Also, I'd first go with the more conservative treatments like rubbing with vaseline and the first thread(just putting vinegar dipped cotton on scar) then if it fails try the second thread (scrubbing off with vinegar)
