Brown spot on nose due to picking blackhead

Recommended Posts

okay so this morning there's a brown spot on my nose due to picking blackheads ( .... there's this blackhead thats seems to have a bump for like 3months and i thought "Well maybe if i picked at it , it would probaly go away ... ) . well so i scratched it violently and it did went away but now the skin around it seems to be damaged and is brown in colour ( instead of red o.O) , it looks like a huge mole from far away when it really isn't . it looks like i scraped the skin(the undamaged skin around that blackhead) away and now the skin under it is brown in colour . I'm not stressing over it but it's embarrassing when i go out . And oh yeah , it still feels bumpy when i touch it .Is this what they call hyperpigmentation or will this brown-ness fade away in a few days ?

well just an update - mmm... i thought that probably the 2nd day , it would sorta scab but it didn't , its still a brown spot like yesterday's . Must scab have to be red and dark and sorta rough ? Or can it be brownish yet smooth ?

update - it eventually did turn to a scab but its brown in colour , but the skin around it is still pretty red and sore - like a red bump with the scab on the middle . Why is this bump not going away ?

Lolz , turns out it wasn't a scab ... when i was washing my face just now , the dead skin above it dropped off , and under it ... was a HUGE ZIT - LIKE WHITE DISGUSTING THINGY ... it was so big ... i squeezed it out because i thought it would be the best thing to do ( or was it ?? ) because it was blocking the blood under it . after that i quickly press the open "hole " onto a towel to stop it from bleeding and quickly put aloe vera to cover that hole , was it the best thing to do ? And oh yeah , the white thingy gave off a foul smell just like those regular zit ..

I really don't know what to tell you, but please don't freak out :) It will probably heal; I'd say put a little neosporin on it every day to help.

Yeah, you can by Neosporin from Wal-Mart or any drugstore. I honestly bet your friend doesn't even notice it, but you probably make there more of a chance for it to be noticed if you don't look at people straight. Because then someone can tell you're insecure about something and they might start searching..

Okay i'm gona explain in a very detailed manner so please don't blame me for being long-winded .

Alright , so there's have a been a bump on my nose for a few months and have not go away , it looked like a bumpy blackhead .. so i decided to pick it , after like 5 min of picking it , the whole area look BROWN ! it looked like a mole from far away but really isn't , it looked like a layer of skin have been peeled off , so after 2 days , it scabbed , but it looked brownish and after a day , i tried to squeeze it because it looked kinda like those infected ones . True enough , there was ALOT of PUSS inside it , i get out all the puss and it was bloody . After JUST 2 DAYS, the scab fell off ... The middle had a really really small hole so i did not mind and after 1 day , it filled in. But it had black dot on it , which i don't if its a blackhead or not because when i use those cleansing foam or what eva you call it , it didn't got "cleaned".So i stupidly tried to scratch it , and the top layer of skin fell off ... inside it was a crater .... IT WAS FREAKING HUGE .... It was alittle red (the crater) so i thought it would scab the next but it DIDNT!!! instead it sort of blend in with my other skin colours except its a DEEP CRATER.... Please , give me an honest answer , will it sort of plump up alittle bit ... or heal completely or will it stay like this till the end of my life ... ? I feel so depressed now ... I'm SURE there would be someone who says that it just a hole ! nobody would see it ! YAR EXCEPT ITS A HUGE ONE ..dammit... shouldnt have done it in the first place ....

It was alittle red (the skin thats lower than the rest of the skin) so i thought it would scab the next but it DIDNT!!! instead it sort of blend in with my other skin colours except its a DEEP CRATER.... Please , give me an honest answer , will it sort of plump up alittle bit ... or heal completely or will it stay like this till the end of my life ... ? .... will it heal !?!! and if yes , how long will it be ? I KNOW for SURE , there would be some one who would say " nobody would notice that ! " its because my camera is not that good ..

Don't worry about it. :) The one is closed and will eventually fall off the front pages as new posts happen. This one has many different answers in it so it's good to go. :)

... so back to the topic starter ... so will it heal ... ?

the more i look at it ... the worst it looks ... now everytime i go out to the public , i look at the mirror and it just looks HORRIBLE ... im so self-conscious about it , i wish i can turn time to two days ago when this happened ...
