real scars, brown marks

Recommended Posts

I'm reading a lot of brown marks left after a pimple. i had a pimple on my forehead last year and I scratched the scab a bit :ninja: The site of the pimple looked red for a year or so.

I tanned in the sun this spring and now the red mark is a brown mark.

BUT it's not really at the site of the pimple. I have REAL scarred tissue on this site which looks white (but not severe at all, you wouldn't noticed if there wasn't this awful brown spot around it), but the SURROUNDING skin is brown and still getting worse.

It's there for a year or so and my skintherapist told me it wasn't postinflammatoire hyperpigmentation, but a reaction of the surrounding skin making pigment to protect the scartissue. Does that sound reasonable? Will this ever fade? It's on my forehead for God's sake!! Looks like I have third eye (which can be very usefull in some cases I guess..)
