Hello Everyone,

I've been getting acne since I was about 18 (and I hardly had a single zit before that)...now I'm 22 and it hasn't let up..sigh. Anyways, it used to be that I would get pimples and when they went away you couldn't even tell there had ever been a pimple there. More recently, however, almost every zit leaves a purplish looking mark. My first question is, is this hyperpigmentation? Secondly, why do the pimples leave these marks, even if I don't pop them, when they never did before?

Thank you!

Yes it is hyperpigmentation. You could prevent it by not trying to pop them out, or avoiding to touch them frequently.

I have the same problem and its very upsetting, im going to ask the doctor if there is anything he can give me to help fade these faster! I am in england btw, so i don`t know what he will suggest, knowing him he'll probably just say no no, u just have to let time heal those and i will be so pissed off if he does mad.gif

There isn`t enough bloody time on our clocks to keep waiting upto 12 months at a time for these marks to go, there has to be something that can help!
