Help with new pitted scars

Recommended Posts

Yes, even when I thought my scarring couldn't get worse, it got worse. I had another bad cystic breakout that left new pits all around my left and right ears. The cysts took months to heal and oozed out clear pus. Now I have these deep red indents. Is there anyone who knows of a trick to catch scars earleir, or a treatment that works when the scars are fresh. Retin A Micro did nothing for my recent cysts and I have been using it to try to alleviate the redness. Can anyone help with the new indents, or am I still f**ked?? PLEASE somebody help me, I feel like killing myself over this.

And, for the record, nothing has ever worked for lessening the appearance of rolling/saucer scars, which are all over my face.

Ylem,

I'm very sorry to hear that. Did you ever try needling and did it consistently? I use diabetic lancets, and it seems to be helping me.

BTW, I hate retin-A, it exasperated my scars.

hm if u had a cyst for more than a week you might wanna go to derm and get cortisone shot or something. If you get bad acne a lot and its just not that one cyst then maybe accutane, only if you get acne daily/bi-weekly or something
