What type of scarring do I have?

Recommended Posts

What type of scarring is this? I would just feel a little more sane if someone could identify it for me aha

I don't believe it to be severe and honestly my forehead is smooth, I cannot feel anything or bumps and it's like they are under the surface of my skin. It's only in my forehead region and I cannot feel anything when I cleanse or moisturise.

Thank you so much :)x

I don't really see much scarring there...just mostly redmarks. Looks like you might have a small rolling scar or two.

to best tell if you have scarring, take a photo in various different lighting and angles.

wow really thanks haha

I suppose they are just red marks but I have had them for a while and they fade sometimes but then come back brighter another day. it's so strange! :(

Any ideas or tips? :D

hypochondriac, one real quick thing, did you ever pop any zits on your forehead? If not, you probably did not scar.

Regarding the red marks, try alpha hydroxy acid

I don't see scarring in this picture, just irritated skin. To reduce the redness you could try to use retin-a or something somewhat lighter (like differin?) It really smoothed out my complexion but it made me look pale ( a look that really doesn't suit me) so I stopped using it.
