Is there a difference between a "macule" and PIH?

Recommended Posts

The red mark that a zit will leave behind... is it PIH or is this a "macule"? Is there a difference?

I HATE THESE THINGS. Mine are pretty much faded but still enough to bother me and make me a bit self-conscious sans makeup. My derm says they should be gone in 10 weeks TOPS, I think something more like 6-8 (I didn't tell him I was using AHA), but either way. Ugh. UGH!!! Last question:

What parts of the face heal FASTEST with red marks, and which parts heal the slowest? I am finding that my forehead has had the marks the longest, but my jawlines are clearing up a bit quicker. My chin is somewhere... in between. Advice? Tips? Encouragement?
