well PIH is marks left behind right? i always get red/pink marks but never brown spots...im not really sure right now since it could just be another scab but im just asking is it possible to get dark brown spots from picking at acne and are they permanent

PIH can be red, pink, or brown, so it could be PIH. I guess the only way to know for sure, though, is to wait and see if it fades. If it does, maybe you just had a random brownish PIH mark. If it doesn't, you have a cute, new freckle! : )
