Help guys, I feel so gutted right now

Recommended Posts

I went to a derm who took a biospy of my scars.

He did I biopsy of one and it came back as a Calcinosis. ()

They've been there for 5 years.

He told me they are hard to treat and that he thought laser resurfacing might help but he said it could also do nothing.

That's 2000 dollars and he said I would need to take 2 weeks off, which I can't.

I'm so depressed about it.

I feel like just getting a knife and cutting them off or something.

Take a look - what do you think I can do about them

They're basically just bumps on my skin that sometimes bleed when I shave over them.

I wouldn't say it's 'just a few chin scars'.

They're ugly, they're the first thing people notice on me and it makes me feel very self conscience and ugly.

Is that it? A few chin scars?

Ditto

I feel like just getting a knife and cutting them off or something.

Even better, get a dermaroller and needle them.

Which would be better, dermaroller or needling?

Well, using a dermaroller is needling.

Some people use other type of needles to do their needling, but as far as I know, the dermaroller is the only device especially made to needle scars.

Do you only have scars on your chin as those pics show?

If I were you I'd just grow my beard a little and that would sort take care of the problem, at least temporarily.

What do you use to shave? Why not try any electric shaver instead?

Just ignore these morons.

It obviously bugs you a great deal. I don't know too much about calcinosis. I would start doing research through google, and maybe google scholar I think it is? to search through medical reports and stuff. I'm sure there is a way out there to reduce it.
