(PICS) Raised, white scar on nose

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've had a raised, white scar on my nose from harshly attempting to pop a blackhead since early 2009. How can I get rid of it? Bio-oil hasn't done anything.

are you sure that was caused by the blackhead?

Because i have a bump like that on my nose, and when i went to dermatologists, they all said it was a fibrous papule (but i never picked at anything, it just spawned out of no where).

I also hit my nose on a chair once (slipped and hit my nose on the chair), and another bump sort of just spawned.

Maybe yours is a fibrous papule?

The blackhead didn't cause it, my very harsh attempt to get it out did. :( Stupid me.

To me, it just looks like a little white bump on your nose, something that no one would notice! Honestly, it seems totally normal!

I'd actually suggest just leaving it alone. It'll probably sort itself out in time

Thanks, but it's just one of those things that feels bigger than it is really :( and people have noticed it. :(

If it really bothers you you might look into electro cautery. I have a few fiberius bumps like that that were caused by me squeezing. My dermatologist recommended that for me to smooth things out. I plan to have it done in the next 2 weeks.

Since it seems to be raised, I would try silicon sheets to flatten it.

I have the same thing :(

take a look at my photos.I got the first one back when I was 17 and it didnt change since than. Im 38 and I recently got additional 3 bumps for my "nose bumps collection"... it is like skin access, nothing underneath that you can squeeze it. all bumps comes after already clear up pimple.

I'm just going to keep applying bio-oil several times a day and hope it's faded by October or something.

@Sandy - Have you seen a derm? It doesn't look like a scar :/

The scar has faded and I don't notice it anymore!

Not sure if it was natural or helped by derma roller and bio oil... :)

When you say it's faded are you also referring to a flattening of the raised scar, or just purely the colour? I've read quite a few anecdotal stories of bio oil having positive effects.

Flattening! In photos you see it's a lump, but I can't see it at all :D

Wish my back scars reacted the same way :(

Callum, are you saying that you eradicated the nose scar with bio oil and derma-rolling? How long did it take?

It was either that or natural healing! I don't know how long it took because I didn't monitor when I got the scar or how long I treated it for, but it took a few months at least.

I just rolled, no special technique (dunno if it was even right or safe!)

1.5mm and I can't remember, but it was maybe every 2 weeks

I'm surprised because I thought it wasn't going to fade much...

did you use numbing cream? I've tried dermarollin on the nose without it and it hurt so much

I have tried it (not on the nose) but it barely worked, so I grin and bear it without
