Red Scars Or Red Marks ? (Confused)

Recommended Posts

Posted

Okay, Long story short: I'm 21 with oily/mixed acne prone skin. Finlly started seeking medical treatment after the red marks on my cheeks started to become noticible, and just didn't go away as regular acne marks usually go (not severe, but still noticible).

Dermatologist had me on clinimycin gel along with some sort of pills (antibiotics), and I started noticing results right away. Thing is, even though it's gotten better it's still noticible, and my right cheek improved far better than my left one. Left area that was recently inflated (a month ago, for some reason) still looks very red and actually a tiny bit deeper than skin surface. Been reading on acne marks Vs. scars and all sources say that scars are colorless, while acne marks are rather red considering they're still healing.

So basically, right cheek is now skin level but only red (it has partially faded away and became far less noticible). But the left area looks a tiny bit deeper than skin surface, like reverse bumps and still red which I find very worrying.

I just hope it isn't scarring, what should I try 1st ? and can acne scars be red ?
