Scar On Lip - Please Tell Me What You Think

Recommended Posts

I have had this scar on my lip for 2 yrs and it doesn't (and will not) heal on its own. I fell when I had braces and extra tissue formed on top of the injury. Does it look like I have some herpes? It's a huge confidence killer and I don't know what to do. Should I consult with a dermatologist? It will definitely require surgery to take off some of the extra tissue.

looks like a keloid scar, if that is the case, you can get steroid injection from your doctor.

I don't think that will work.

Hopefully it isn't that bad?

Keloid is one that keeps getting larger. That's a small hypertrophic scar.

Judging by the photos I wouldnt do anything, but if it bothers then sure go talk to a dermatologist. :J

Nope back when I had braces I was running in my dark hallway and fell and one of the braces went through my lip. Now two years later the scar is still there. I don't think injections would remove something like this because there is extra skin on top of the lip. Hopefully it doesnt look like herpes?

Here is another picture that shows it the scar under direct darkish lighting.

Please tell me what you think!!! Don't leave without leaving a reply.

Thanks
