do redmarks (pih) ever not fade?

Can some red marks stay on your skin forever?

It depends on the cause of the PIH.

PIH from acne should always fade away with time. PIH caused by something else however, may require surgical methods to remove.

It may not even be PIH and could be another condition thats mimicking it.

Best to get it checked out in any case.

hey, i am pretty my PIH is from acne, because i got those red spots only after i get pimples there. You said to get it checked, and the thing is, what if my dermatologist thinks it is just PIH from acne, but its something else, like broken blood vessels? FML

Then i'd suggest getting a better dermatologist! ;)

Dermatologists are qualified to identify any skin condition, so i'm pretty sure your derm will be able to tell you exactly what the problem is.

Regardless of whether its PIH or something else. There is always treatment methods available for skin discolouration.

But you must see your derm if you arent seeing any improvements in your marks over time.
