Thanks for the reply!
The scab has finally fell off after a few days. Now, weirdly, there's a raised bump where the scab used to be...
Will this bump flatten over time?
I get extra paranoid about these things..
If it was like any other pimple, it'll flatten out over time. I find that when you don't pick at it or whatever, it won't leave as much of a mark but the "bump" takes longer to go away. I think it's just because the pus has to drain from that area since you haven't picked an opening for it to leave that way. But I'd rather the little bump than hyperpigmentation.
If it doesn't shrink or completely go away by a week then maybe it's something else.
