Whitehead caused large hyperpigmentation mark on face!? Pics included

Recommended Posts

I recently got a large white head on the side of my face...it was much bigger than usual and I feared it would scar if I popped it so I left it applying benzoyl peroxide daily. It would not go and in the end I pricked it with a very small surgical needle and got rid of it that way (Sorry for the graphic description). It has now gone down and left the normal hyperpigmentation which usual goes after a few weeks. However, it seems very flat almost like a burn or scar. It is not an icepick scar. Im wondering if it has scared. Im quite concerened as it quite large and on my face!

Im glad it at least hasnt made a ditch/icepick but am still concerned it may be another kind of scar.

Here is a picture of what it looks like: http://tinypic.com/r/2uzdu6q/6

"time heals all" i've got the same, it will fade. If you dont suffer from acne anymore apply glycolic or lactic acid, lemon juice, honey mask etc
