Raised Scars on Chest

Recommended Posts

So about two and a half years ago, my chest broke out continuously. Not knowing how to react properly, I did the inevitable and mercilessly popped all of them. This of course caused trauma to the skin by my chest and now, I have about 13 of these raised, shiny, poreless, hairless, and light scars. These scars are extremely embarrassing, and I am very nervous as to what to do as pool time has already arrived. Being a guy known to be very athletic and known to have a six-pack, it is almost unavoidable, and I am not sure how I did it last summer. This summer I hope I don't have to go through that again. HOW DO I GET RID OF THESE? I went to the dermatologist and he said they were permanent, but I feel like he didn't even take a look a them and disregarded it. If it helps, I'm asian and 15 years old.

Thank you and please help.

hey what do they feel like.? sicne from a picture were you told thet are hypertrophic scars?

if they are and they way they look, the best options to flatten and make less red are pulse dye laser, cortizone shots and silicone

Nope it's completely dead, but these scars are definitely permanent.

They are raised above the skin and the dermatologist made it clear that they were permanent.

If you just have red marks and they are neither raised nor indented, consider yourself lucky as your skin will return to complete normal.

Try contractbutex, or Neosporin, these are reported to work on oversized scars

You could also try TCA CROSS on those spots.

I have exactly same looking scars but these are totally WHITE, Raised from the normal skin, and i can see little pore in middle of these, VERY annoing. But the good thing is you cant really see these :)

Best luck, - daew

Those dont look raised enough to be keloid scars but i believe they are hypertrophic scars and they are permanent.. but the good news is you can go to the dermatologist and get a cortizone injections on them and they will flatten but with the color i would do a pulsed dye laser like the candela v beam. Ask your derm about it .

Yes I am definitely sure they are not keloids, and pretty sure they are hypertrophic. Derm appts take too long so I'm currently using mederma and praying to God that it works, and that it works quickly.
